[ELF] Emit DT_TEXTREL dynamic table flag

Authored by atanasyan on May 11 2014, 2:30 AM.



If one or more dynamic relocation might modify a read-only section, dynamic table should contain DT_TEXTREL tag.

The patch introduces new RelocationTable::canModifyReadonlySection() method. This method checks through the relocations to see if any modifies a read-only section. The DynamicTable class calls this method and emits the DT_TEXTREL tag if necessary.

In this version of thу patch the RelocationTable::canModifyReadonlySection() method iterates over relocations to see if any one modifies a read-only section each time when we need this information.

can you expand "auto"?


nit: fit in one line

The type name of rel is rather long - std::pair<const DefinedAtom *, const Reference *>. It is possible to make it shorter using typedefs but I cannot invent a good short name.


Yeah, the expression does not look good. But how can we fit it into one line?

I'd probably write like this

for (const auto &rel : _relocs) {

const DefinedAtom *atom = rel.first

But I feel it might be a bit verbose. It's up to you.


It looked me that it would fit in 80 chars. It actually isn't. Sorry.

Can you also add the corresponding --warn-shared-textrel option?
It would also be nice to indicate which section at what offset by which relocation created the text relocation.
The lack of any hint towards what triggered the text relocation is one of the most annoying "features" of GNU ld.

Sure, I plan to add the --warn-shared-textrel option in a separate patch.
