https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45598 reported another case where the current logic has a false positive:
Bitcode does not record undefined module-level inline assembly symbols
(IRSymtab.cpp:Builder::addSymbol). Such an undefined symbol does not
have the FB_tls bit and lld will not consider it STT_TLS. When the symbol is
later replaced by a STT_TLS Defined, lld will error "TLS attribute mismatch".
This patch fixes this false positive by allowing a STT_NOTYPE undefined
symbol to be replaced by a STT_TLS.
Moving the diagnostics to scanRelocs() can improve the diagnostics (PR36049)
but that requires a fair amount of refactoring. We will need more
RelExpr members. It requires more thoughts whether it is worthwhile.
See test/ELF/tls-mismatch.s for behavior differences. We will fail to
diagnose a likely runtime bug (STT_NOTYPE non-TLS relocation referencing
a TLS definition). This is probably acceptable because compiler
generated code sets symbol types properly.
