[LLD] [COFF] Unbreak sorting of mingw comdat .tls sections after SVN r363457

Authored by mstorsjo on Jul 19 2019, 2:04 PM.



Code built for mingw with -fdata-sections will store each TLS variable in a comdat section, named .tls$$<varname>. Normal TLS variables are stored in sections named .tls$ with a trailing dollar, which are sorted before a starter marker (in a later linked object file) in a section named ".tls" (with no dollar suffix), before an ending marker in a section named ".tls$ZZZ".

The mingw comdat section suffix stripping introduced in SVN r363457 broke sorting of such tls sections, ending up sorting the stripped .tls$$<varname> sections (stripped to ".tls") before the start marker in the section named ".tls".

We could either add exceptions to the section name suffix stripping for .tls (and .CRT, where suffixes always should be honored), but the more conservative option is probably the reverse; to only apply the stripping for the normal sections where sorting shouldn't have any effect.

@hans This is a fix for a regression from June, that needs to go to the 9 branch once we settle upon how to handle it.

Thanks, I'll keep a look on it.

To improve the readability, I'd make the condition a helper. I suppose it needs sc and name. You can elaborate on the whitelist/blacklist reasoning there.

I think I would apply the same logic to the standard sections of .text, .data, .rdata, .pdata, and .xdata. Otherwise we'll make three unneeded PartialSections for every inline function on x64 and do more sorting than necessary.

@hans FYI, this needed a followup fix for tests on windows buildbots, in rL366784.
