Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

Hey @Toolybird, thanks for sharing the link. I think I am almost down to the bottom of it.

sha1_finish_ctx is defined in sha1.c.

I think the issue is the -flto gcc flag.

[root@john libiberty]# gcc -c -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fno-plt -fexceptions         -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -Wformat -Werror=format-security         -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection -flto      -I. -I/build/binutils/src/binutils-gdb/libiberty/../include  -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wc++-compat -Wstrict-prototypes -Wshadow=local -pedantic  -D_GNU_SOURCE -fcf-protection /build/binutils/src/binutils-gdb/libiberty/sha1.c -o sha1.o
[root@john libiberty]# objdump -D sha1.o | grep sha1_finish_ctx
Disassembly of section .gnu.lto_sha1_finish_ctx.52.506c201690acd78c:
0000000000000000 <.gnu.lto_sha1_finish_ctx.52.506c201690acd78c>:
[root@john libiberty]# gcc -c -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fno-plt -fexceptions         -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -Wformat -Werror=format-security         -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection      -I. -I/build/binutils/src/binutils-gdb/libiberty/../include  -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wc++-compat -Wstrict-prototypes -Wshadow=local -pedantic  -D_GNU_SOURCE -fcf-protection /build/binutils/src/binutils-gdb/libiberty/sha1.c -o sha1.o
[root@john libiberty]# objdump -D sha1.o | grep sha1_finish_ctx
00000000000013f0 <sha1_finish_ctx>:
   ...

As you can see, with -flto, the sha1_finish_ctx will get transformed to .gnu.lto_sha1_finish_ctx.52.506c201690acd78c and also becomes a non-function.
without -flto, the name is correct.

Adding these before ./configure should work.

  # remove lto
  CFLAGS=${CFLAGS/-flto/}
  CXXFLAGS=${CXXFLAGS/-flto/}
  LDFLAGS=${LDFLAGS/-flto/}

EDIT: yes, it works wonderfully.

Use this instead:

options=('!lto')

My entire toolchain is built with that specified in the PKGBUILD.   I'm looking at adding --enable-pgo-build=lto to both binutils and gcc once the new binutils release is out and I have merged my gcc-12 pre-release branch.

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

I got a bunch of test failures on gcc. Now I wonder how are you guys deal with gcc in the past? especially how do you maintain patches between major releases? Since 11.2.0 was released, there're patches added to upstream almost every day. Are you going to keep adding all those patches on top?

@Allan @Xyne - you guys are using completely different patches for gcc 11.2. May I ask where did you get those patches from?

Thanks.

The source of my patches are documented in the PKGBUILD.  The SSP/PIE failure ones were written by me - SSP has been accepted upstream.  The analyzer failures patch was submitted upstream by someone else.

Looks like Xyne pulled the patches from the current Arch GCC PKGBUILD.  Some were irrelevant for my reduced toolchain (e.g. Ada), others I don't need as I am building from newer sources.

I do a full toolchain rebuild at least every month, so the patches on the relevant branch get included.

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

I guess the question is that what's the policy to handle upstream patches?

1. Accept all patches - which might require frequent rebuilds.
2. Ignore all of them until next release.
3. Accept some of the patches - How do you determine if one is needed or not? policies?

Thanks.

Arch does not have a policy.  Some like building from the head of the git release branch as you get all patches and avoid the pain of backports (mostly).  Others like to backport patches that fix specific problems.

I think using the head of the git branch is best, because it does include many fixes that upstream developers agree with, and so should not miss fixes for more minor issues that you are not fully aware of to backport.  However...   I once did that for binutils, and the linux kernel compiled with that patch corrupted all ext3/4 filesystems on boot beyond recovery.  So there are some risks!

As to the frequency of updates if building from the branch, a practical approach is needed - rebuild when it is needed and the packager has time to fix any issues.

Yeah, it makes sense. Found around 200 failures on gcc check on 11.2.0 release tar ball. I might try the tip of the gcc 11.2 release branch instead.

Hey @Xyne, thanks for doing all of that. Nifty scripts! But I was wondering about this item on the TODO:

> Merge gcc-libs back into gcc to avoid having to split the package in the PKGBUILD (cmp. Allan's toolchain)

@Allan, I've read your rationale, but I'm wondering is this something we really want? For sure the current PKGBUILD is ugly AF, but are we doing this solely to simplify the PKGBUILD? At one point I actually re-wrote the GCC PKGBUILD to make all the splits less yuck. Yeah, pkg splits are not really the Arch way, but they do have their uses. I guess I have a slight philosophical issue with pulling in the whole compiler as a runtime dep. Anyway, something to think about and maybe discuss.

I don't have a strong opinion either way. I was a little tired when I wrote it and my eyes were glossing over after reading through the PKGBUILD so I was more inclined towards ripping it all out and starting with something simpler. I'd be interested in seeing your less sucky splits.

I haven't touched this since I posted the repo. I got side-swiped by real-life obligations. I hope to have some time towards the end of the week.

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

Just gcc-libs vs gcc could be a compromise.  Though there is a bug report asking for gcc-go to be split further, so this may not go down well...

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

Thanks Allan.

I continue to do the following:

1. asp checkout and rebuild the linux repo, it seems successful. But there's no test.
2. rebuild the libtool repo. there is 2 test failures:

## ------------------------ ##
## Summary of the failures. ##
## ------------------------ ##
Failed tests:
GNU Libtool 2.4.6.42-b88ce-dirty test suite test groups:

 NUM: FILE-NAME:LINE     TEST-GROUP-NAME
      KEYWORDS

  67: link-order2.at:46  Link order of deplibs
      libtool interactive
 170: cmdline_wrap.at:28 Run tests with low max_cmd_len
      recursive expensive

3. rebuild valgrind and it also seems successful

Is the two test failure on libtool concern anyone?

There has never been any way to do that.  An the dev team had working packages last week/month but were waiting for binutils to release.

BTW, your libtool failures are because that test can not use LTO.  Fedora has a patch which has been pulled to Arch.

Re: What is happening with glibc and gcc packages?

I've installed the new toolchain and my computer hasn't exploded yet, I am not having any problems at the moment.

I could compile my custom kernel just fine, but other packages failed to compile throwing these kind of errors

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/libx265.so.199: reference to `std::__cxx11::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> >::_M_create(unsigned long&, unsigned long)@GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not defined

Also the new toolchain doesn't move the --enable-install-libiberty to binutils. Do you think it's worth to open a bug report? I installed the new staging toolchain. so far no issue.
