[ELF] - fixed not properly handled @GOTTPOFF relocation against local symbols.

Authored by grimar on Dec 16 2015, 10:00 AM.



This patch changes sequence of applying relocations, moving tls optimized relocation handling code before code for other locals.
Without that change relocation @GOTTPOFF against local symbol caused runtime error ("unrecognized reloc ...").
That change also should fix other tls optimized relocations, but I did not check them, thats a field for another patch.

R_X86_64_GOTTPOFF relocations agains locals can be found when linking against libc.a(malloc.o):

This is an unrelated change to the reordering of TLS optimization code, no? If so, please split this patch into two patches.

Actually it is related. For local symbols getLocalRelTarget() is used to obtain SymVA. Previously it calculated addend inside and always used it for result. But for this relocation addend should not be taken in account as it is optimized in relocateTlsOptimize().
Thats why I had to add addend as argument here.

Can you remove variable Body and use *PBody instead? It now feels a bit odd to define a new variable here just to dereference PBody.

Ok, I did it because of 2 reasons:

  1. Code that used Body assumed that it is not null, therefore reference object is the best for it.
  2. Using of *PBody introduced lot of changes, almost each line was affected what was not very reasonable because of first reason for me.

But having another variable for the same object also not very good, here I agree. I renamed PBody to Body then, since PBody name appeared because Body was busy, and its also consistent with other code which uses Body name for pointers to SymbolBody.
