Subject: [PATCH 0/6] Change how symbol section indices are set
Date: Wed, 18 Jan 2023 08:30:19 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

An otherwise innocuous internal AdaCore test case started failing when
linked with 'mold'.  Investigation revealed that the problem was
actually in gdb -- gdb decided that a certain symbol was in the
.interp section.

Digging deeper, I found that most calls to fixup_symbol_section are
incorrect, and that if a section is chosen, it's frequently the wrong

This series attempts to clean up this area.  Regression tested on
x86-64 Fedora 36.
