Subject: [PATCH 10/19] ia64: fix ptrace(PTRACE_GETREGS) (unbreaks strace, gdb)
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

The strace breakage looks like that:
./strace: get_regs: get_regs_error: Input/output error


It happens because ia64 needs to load unwind tables
to read certain registers. Unwind tables fail to load
due to GCC quirk on the following code:


    extern char __end_unwind[];
    const struct unw_table_entry *end = (struct unw_table_entry *)table_end;
    table->end = segment_base + end[-1].end_offset;


GCC does not generate correct code for this single memory
reference after constant propagation (see https://gcc.gnu.org/PR84184).
Two triggers are required for bad code generation:
- '__end_unwind' has alignment lower (char), than
  'struct unw_table_entry' (8).
- symbol offset is negative.

This commit workarounds it by fixing alignment of '__end_unwind'.
While at it use hidden symbols to generate shorter gp-relative
relocations.
