Does --start-lib/--end-lib really implies --start-group/--end-group?

t3.o .globl bar; bar:
t4.o .globl foo; foo: call bar
t.o .global _start; _start: call bar t.o --start-lib t3.o t4.o --end-lib # successfully

Without this revision, ld.lld --warn-backrefs t.o --start-lib t3.o t4.o --end-lib warns that t4.o has a reference on t3.o.

If that's the case, --start-lib implies --start-group. To handle it, I'd set InputFile::IsInGroup to true for --start-lib just like we are doing for --start-group, so that --start-lib is handled as if --start-group everywhere.

Treat --start-lib as --start-group when using --warn-backrefs


gold disallows --start-group --start-lib nested in any order so we can simplify the handling.

// gold/

  if (this->in_group_)
    gold_fatal(_("May not nest groups"));
  if (this->in_lib_)
    gold_fatal(_("may not nest groups in libraries"));
  Input_file_group* group = new Input_file_group();
  this->in_group_ = true;

// Start a lib.

Input_arguments::start_lib(const Position_dependent_options& options)
  if (this->in_lib_)
    gold_fatal(_("may not nest libraries"));
  if (this->in_group_)
    gold_fatal(_("may not nest libraries in groups"));
  Input_file_lib* lib = new Input_file_lib(options);
  this->in_lib_ = true;

Update test

Do you need this? I think you now always set IsInGroup if you are InLib, so this new condition doesn't seem necessary.

Does --start-lib/--end-lib really implies --start-group/--end-group?

Not exactly. --start-lib/--end-lib means that those files are treated like a single .a. The tradition ELF handling of a .a file will loop over the members until no new member is fetched.

This revision was automatically updated to reflect the committed changes.

This revision breaks build systems where the current directory isn't writable, because the test warn-backrefs.s just writes to a.out.

I have committed R330464 to add an output argument, which fixes the test.
