Fix -emit-reloc against local symbols.

Authored by ruiu on Apr 4 2019, 10:18 PM.



Previously, we drop symbols starting with .L from the symbol table, so
if there is a relocation that refers a .L symbol, it ended up
referencing a null -- which happened to be interpreted as an absolute

This patch copies all symbols including local ones if -emit-reloc is

I can confirm this fixes the Linux kernel relocation visibility problem I saw. Thank you!

I would suggest adding the header for these values and a short description of what this patch does.
(I know we are missing the descriptions often, but ideally, I think we might want to add a description for each of
our test. At least that is something I have in my TODO list for LLD and it is really useful sometimes).

what this patch does -> what this test checks

Honestly, unlike code, I don't think we need to explain the test in details. If you will need to change this test in the future, for example, it is very likely that you are changing the code and already understand what is expected.

I disagree here. It is sometimes hard to realize what the test does. I do not see any reason why we can't add a short description for each.
Perhaps the problem is that I still do not understand what this test do? And then this is what I am talking about: each test should have a clear description.

I agree with George that a short description will be helpful.

  1. help understand the code
  2. convenience for people who make layout changes and have to adjust many tests
