[llvm-objcopy][MachO] Ignore LC_LINKER_OPTION when redefining symbols

Authored by keith on Jan 28 2022, 8:08 PM.



Previously you would get this error:

error: unsupported load command (cmd=0x2d)

If the binary you were redefining the symbols of contained a
LC_LINKER_OPTION load command. This command does not need to be changed
when redefining symbols so we can ignore it like many others.

@keith - this test is not a good place for adding various load commands.
I'd recommend to add a separate test (until we have a test that specifically verifies all the copied-over load commands) (and remove this directive from redefine-symbol.s)
(if yaml supports LC_LINKER_OPTION - yaml-based, if it doesn't - assembly-based)
(the test should invoke llvm-objcopy without any extra flags)

Thanks for the feedback! I submitted which I hope can be a starting point for that, let me know what you think.

For my context how do you choose between yaml vs asm for this kind of test?


There are a few considerations / factors here. I'll list some of them below (although there might be more):

  1. in general, for objcopy etc most tests use YAML: (a) human-readable (b) support for both relocatable / non-relocatable binaries (c) more control over various elements of the binary
  2. For Mach-O the support on ObjYAML's side is incomplete
  3. For some situations YAML can be very verbose / inconvenient
  4. If a test uses llvm-mc, then it depends on the MC layer => the test might hypothetically break if there are changes there

(but this happens rarely)
