Subject[PATCHv3 0/2] Salted build ids via linker sections
Date
Hi,

This is v3 of the series to allow unique build-ids in the kernel. As
a reminder of the context:

""
In Fedora, the debug information is packaged separately (foo-debuginfo) and
can be installed separately. There's been a long standing issue where only one
version of a debuginfo info package can be installed at a time. Mark Wielaard
made an effort for Fedora 27 to allow parallel installation of debuginfo (see
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/ParallelInstallableDebuginfo for
more details)

Part of the requirement to allow this to work is that build ids are
unique between builds. The existing upstream rpm implementation ensures
this by re-calculating the build-id using the version and release as a
seed. This doesn't work 100% for the kernel because of the vDSO which is
its own binary and doesn't get updated. After poking holes in a few of my
ideas, there was a discussion with some people from the binutils team about
adding --build-id-salt to let ld do the calculation debugedit is doing. There
was a counter proposal made about adding some extra information via a .comment
which will affect the build id calculation but just get stripped out.
""

I mentioned in the previous version that there were problems with
sporadic build failures. v3 switches to generating the linker script
directly instead of a header + a linker script to avoid this problem. I
also dropped the Kconfig completely (I can add it back as a guard if
this seems not small enough to want all the time). I've also dropped the
RFC tag since it's well formed enough at this point.
