  To: prelink

As part of the recently announced Yocto Project <>, a 
cross-prelinker project was announced.  The goal of this project is simply to 
centralize the cross-prelinker work that has existed for some time, but not 
found a home.

I have been working on putting together the various cross prelink patches that 
have been created/posted over the past 7 years or so.  These patches were 
original written by MontaVista Software, Wind River Systems, and Code Sourcery. 
  (The ChangeLog.cross attempts to capture the history as much as was possible.)

The sources <> are based 
on imports from the prelink SVN tree and the patches mentioned above.  The 
cross_prelink branch is top of tree.  (Master is simply the import of the SVN tree.)

The primary difference between the master SVN tree, and the cross-prelink 
project tree is the addition of a cross run-time linker (emulator) that can work 
in a cross-development environment.  This run-time linker will go through many 
of the same steps as normally would, but is external of the filesystem 
and libc being linked.  (Also has the side effect of looking like ldd output so 
you now have a way to see what ldd would report on the target architecture 
without having to boot it.)

Question -- is there any interest in cleaning up this work and it being included 
into the master prelink SVN tree?

If so, any suggestions or guidelines for submission?
