  - Update to binutils 2.37:
    * The GNU Binutils sources now requires a C99 compiler and library to
    * Support for the arm-symbianelf format has been removed.
    * Support for Realm Management Extension (RME) for AArch64 has been
    * A new linker option '-z report-relative-reloc' for x86 ELF targets
      has been added to report dynamic relative relocations.
    * A new linker option '-z start-stop-gc' has been added to disable
      special treatment of __start_*/__stop_* references when
    - -gc-sections.
    * A new linker options '-Bno-symbolic' has been added which will
      cancel the '-Bsymbolic' and '-Bsymbolic-functions' options.
    * The readelf tool has a new command line option which can be used to
      specify how the numeric values of symbols are reported.
    - -sym-base=0|8|10|16 tells readelf to display the values in base 8,
      base 10 or base 16.  A sym base of 0 represents the default action
      of displaying values under 10000 in base 10 and values above that in
      base 16.
    * A new format has been added to the nm program.  Specifying
      '--format=just-symbols' (or just using -j) will tell the program to
      only display symbol names and nothing else.
    * A new command line option '--keep-section-symbols' has been added to
      objcopy and strip.  This stops the removal of unused section symbols
      when the file is copied.  Removing these symbols saves space, but
      sometimes they are needed by other tools.
    * The '--weaken', '--weaken-symbol' and '--weaken-symbols' options
      supported by objcopy now make undefined symbols weak on targets that
      support weak symbols.
    * Readelf and objdump can now display and use the contents of .debug_sup
    * Readelf and objdump will now follow links to separate debug info
      files by default.  This behaviour can be stopped via the use of the
      new '-wN' or '--debug-dump=no-follow-links' options for readelf and
      the '-WN' or '--dwarf=no-follow-links' options for objdump.  Also
      the old behaviour can be restored by the use of the
      '--enable-follow-debug-links=no' configure time option.
      The semantics of the =follow-links option have also been slightly
      changed.  When enabled, the option allows for the loading of symbol
      tables and string tables from the separate files which can be used
      to enhance the information displayed when dumping other sections,
      but it does not automatically imply that information from the
      separate files should be displayed.
      If other debug section display options are also enabled (eg
      '--debug-dump=info') then the contents of matching sections in both
      the main file and the separate debuginfo file *will* be displayed.
      This is because in most cases the debug section will only be present
      in one of the files.
      If however non-debug section display options are enabled (eg
      '--sections') then the contents of matching parts of the separate
      debuginfo file will *not* be displayed.  This is because in most
      cases the user probably only wanted to load the symbol information
      from the separate debuginfo file.  In order to change this behaviour
      a new command line option --process-links can be used.  This will
      allow di0pslay options to applied to both the main file and any
      separate debuginfo files.
    * Nm has a new command line option: '--quiet'.  This suppresses "no
      symbols" diagnostic.

  - Add temporary upstream fix for PR27311
* Sun Jan 24 2021 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to binutils 2.36:
    New features in the Assembler:
    * When setting the link order attribute of ELF sections, it is now
      possible to use a numeric section index instead of symbol name.
    * Added a .nop directive to generate a single no-op instruction in
      a target neutral manner.  This instruction does have an effect on
      DWARF line number generation, if that is active.
    * Removed --reduce-memory-overheads and --hash-size as gas now
      uses hash tables that can be expand and shrink automatically.
    * Add support for AVX VNNI, HRESET, UINTR, TDX, AMX and Key
      Locker instructions.
    * Support non-absolute segment values for lcall and ljmp.
    * Add {disp16} pseudo prefix to x86 assembler.
    * Configure with --enable-x86-used-note by default for Linux/x86.
    * Add support for Cortex-A78, Cortex-A78AE and Cortex-X1,
      Cortex-R82, Neoverse V1, and Neoverse N2 cores.
    * Add support for ETMv4 (Embedded Trace Macrocell), ETE (Embedded
      Trace Extension), TRBE (Trace Buffer Extension), CSRE (Call
      Stack Recorder Extension) and BRBE (Branch Record Buffer
      Extension) system registers.
    * Add support for Armv8-R and Armv8.7-A ISA extensions.
    * Add support for DSB memory nXS barrier, WFET and WFIT
      instruction for Armv8.7.
    * Add support for +csre feature for -march. Add CSR PDEC
      instruction for CSRE feature in AArch64.
    * Add support for +flagm feature for -march in Armv8.4 AArch64.
    * Add support for +ls64 feature for -march in Armv8.7
      AArch64. Add atomic 64-byte load/store instructions for this
    * Add support for +pauth (Pointer Authentication) feature for
    - march in AArch64.
      New features in the Linker:
    * Add --error-handling-script=<NAME> command line option to allow
      a helper script to be invoked when an undefined symbol or a
      missing library is encountered.  This option can be suppressed
      via the configure time switch: --enable-error-handling-script=no.
    * Add -z x86-64-{baseline|v[234]} to the x86 ELF linker to mark
      x86-64-{baseline|v[234]} ISA level as needed.
    * Add -z unique-symbol to avoid duplicated local symbol names.
    * The creation of PE format DLLs now defaults to using a more
      secure set of DLL characteristics.
    * The linker now deduplicates the types in .ctf sections.  The new
      command-line option --ctf-share-types describes how to do this:
      its default value, share-unconflicted, produces the most compact
    * The linker now omits the "variable section" from .ctf sections
      by default, saving space.  This is almost certainly what you
      want unless you are working on a project that has its own
      analogue of symbol tables that are not reflected in the ELF
    New features in other binary tools:
    * The ar tool's previously unused l modifier is now used for
      specifying dependencies of a static library. The arguments of
      this option (or --record-libdeps long form option) will be
      stored verbatim in the __.LIBDEP member of the archive, which
      the linker may read at link time.
    * Readelf can now display the contents of LTO symbol table
      sections when asked to do so via the --lto-syms command line
    * Readelf now accepts the -C command line option to enable the
      demangling of symbol names.  In addition the --demangle=<style>,
    - -no-demangle, --recurse-limit and --no-recurse-limit options
      are also now availale.

* Mon Oct 12 2020 Stefan Brüns <>
  - Reapply spec file cleanup from format_spec_file
  - Remove a SLE10 version check
* Mon Sep 21 2020 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to 2.35.1 and rebased branch diff:
    * This is a point release over the previous 2.35 version, containing bug
    fixes, and as an exception to the usual rule, one new feature.  The
    new feature is the support for a new directive in the assembler:
    ".nop".  This directive creates a single no-op instruction in whatever
    encoding is correct for the target architecture.  Unlike the .space or
    .fill this is a real instruction, and it does affect the generation of
    DWARF line number tables, should they be enabled.
* Tue Sep 15 2020
  - Update binutils-2.35-branch.diff.gz to commit 23f268a0:

* Fri Aug 07 2020
  - Add binutils-revert-nm-symversion.diff to be compatible with old

  - Add binutils-fix-abierrormsg.diff to work around an eager (new)
    error message occuring without inputs and as-needed (affects
    nvme-cli build).
* Fri Jul 24 2020 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to binutils 2.35:
    * The asseembler can now produce DWARF-5 format line number tables.
    * Readelf now has a "lint" mode to enable extra checks of the files it is processing.
    * Readelf will now display "[...]" when it has to truncate a symbol name.
      The old behaviour - of displaying as many characters as possible, up to
      the 80 column limit - can be restored by the use of the --silent-truncation
    * The linker can now produce a dependency file listing the inputs that it
      has processed, much like the -M -MP option supported by the compiler.

      generate ascii art thats show the arcs between that start and end
      points of control flow instructions.
    * The binutils tools now have support for debuginfod.  Debuginfod is a
      HTTP service for distributing ELF/DWARF debugging information as
      well as source code.  The tools can now connect to debuginfod
      servers in order to download debug information about the files that
      they are processing.

* Mon Nov 18 2019
  - Add add-ulp-section.diff for user space live patching.
* Tue Oct 22 2019 Martin Liška <>
  - Update to binutils 2.33.1:
    * Adds support for the Arm Scalable Vector Extension version 2
      (SVE2) instructions, the Arm Transactional Memory Extension (TME)
      instructions and the Armv8.1-M Mainline and M-profile Vector
      Extension (MVE) instructions.
    * Adds support for the Arm Cortex-A76AE, Cortex-A77 and Cortex-M35P
      processors and the AArch64 Cortex-A34, Cortex-A65, Cortex-A65AE,
      Cortex-A76AE, and Cortex-A77 processors.
    * Adds a .float16 directive for both Arm and AArch64 to allow
      encoding of 16-bit floating point literals.
    * For MIPS, Add -m[no-]fix-loongson3-llsc option to fix (or not)
      Loongson3 LLSC Errata.  Add a --enable-mips-fix-loongson3-llsc=[yes|no]
      configure time option to set the default behavior. Set the default
      if the configure option is not used to "no".
    * The Cortex-A53 Erratum 843419 workaround now supports a choice of
      which workaround to use.  The option --fix-cortex-a53-843419 now
      takes an optional argument --fix-cortex-a53-843419[=full|adr|adrp]
      which can be used to force a particular workaround to be used.
      See --help for AArch64 for more details.
    * Add support for GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI and
      GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_PAC  in ELF GNU program properties
      in the AArch64 ELF linker.
    * Add -z force-bti for AArch64 to enable GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI
      on output while warning about missing GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI
      on inputs and use PLTs protected with BTI.
    * Add -z pac-plt for AArch64 to pick PAC enabled PLTs.
    * Add --source-comment[=<txt>] option to objdump which if present,
      provides a prefix to source code lines displayed in a disassembly.
    * Add --set-section-alignment <section-name>=<power-of-2-align>
      option to objcopy to allow the changing of section alignments.
    * Add --verilog-data-width option to objcopy for verilog targets to
      control width of data elements in verilog hex format.
    * The separate debug info file options of readelf (--debug-dump=links
      and --debug-dump=follow) and objdump (--dwarf=links and
    - -dwarf=follow-links) will now display and/or follow multiple
      links if more than one are present in a file.  (This usually
      happens when gcc's -gsplit-dwarf option is used).
      In addition objdump's --dwarf=follow-links now also affects its
      other display options, so that for example, when combined with
    - -syms it will cause the symbol tables in any linked debug info
      files to also be displayed.  In addition when combined with
    - -disassemble the --dwarf= follow-links option will ensure that
      any symbol tables in the linked files are read and used when
      disassembling code in the main file.
    * Add support for dumping types encoded in the Compact Type Format
      to objdump and readelf.

      Address Memory (CAM) ASE and the Loongson MultiMedia extensions
      Instructions (MMI) ASE.
    * The addr2line, c++filt, nm and objdump tools now have a default
      limit on the maximum amount of recursion that is allowed whilst
      demangling strings.  This limit can be disabled if necessary.

* Mon Jul 16 2018
  - Update to binutils 2.31
    * The AArch64 port now supports showing disassembly notes which are emitted
      when inconsistencies are found with the instruction that may result in the
      instruction being invalid.  These can be turned on with the option -M notes
      to objdump.
    * The AArch64 port now emits warnings when a combination of an instruction and
      a named register could be invalid.
    * Added O modifier to ar to display member offsets inside an archive
    * The ADR and ADRL pseudo-instructions supported by the ARM assembler
      now only set the bottom bit of the address of thumb function symbols
      if the -mthumb-interwork command line option is active.
    * Add --generate-missing-build-notes=[yes|no] option to create (or not) GNU
      Build Attribute notes if none are present in the input sources.  Add a
    - -enable-generate-build-notes=[yes|no] configure time option to set the
      default behaviour.  Set the default if the configure option is not used
      to "no".
    * Remove -mold-gcc command-line option for x86 targets.
    * Add -O[2|s] command-line options to x86 assembler to enable alternate
      shorter instruction encoding.
    * Add support for .nops directive.  It is currently supported only for
      x86 targets.
    * Speed up direct linking with DLLs for Cygwin and Mingw targets.
    * Add a configure option --enable-separate-code to decide whether
    - z separate-code should be enabled in ELF linker by default.  Default
      to yes for Linux/x86 targets.  Note that -z separate-code can increase
      disk and memory size.

      supports this functionality.
    * Tighten linker script grammar around file name specifiers to prevent the use
      of SORT_BY_ALIGNMENT and SORT_BY_INIT_PRIORITY on filenames.  These would
      previously be accepted but had no effect.
