No it hints the R_ARM_LDRS_* relocation is being tested (used for
{LD,ST}R{D,H,SH} instructions).

No problem.  But note I still need to change the existing
group-relocs-ldr(s)-bad tests a little bit as they were no longer failing
because of the exact nature of this sb patch.

I recreated the patch and also corrected a problem which I found out in
the meanwhile : when using an unresolved symbol for the SB group relocation
there was an ICE as the section containing that symbol is NULL.  Hence
the added test on sym_sec in elf32_arm_final_link_relocation.
I also added a specific unresolved failure test for this.

	PR ld/15787
	* elf32-arm.c (elf32_arm_final_link_relocate): Use origin of output
	segment containing the relocating symbol instead of assuming 0 for
	sb group relocations.


John Tytgat  <>

	PR ld/15787
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldr-bad.s: Redefine bar into foo section
	beyond 16 bit offset width.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldrs-bad.s: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldr-bad.d: Adjust expected result.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldrs-bad.d: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs.s: Add comments.  Move symbols used for sb
	group relocations into .data section.  Drop section zero.  Use pc/r0
	as base register when pc/sb group relocations are used.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs.d: Adjust expected result.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-alu-bad-2.d: New test for sb group relocation.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldc-bad-2.d: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldr-bad-2.d: New test for pc group relocation.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldrs-bad-2.d: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/unresolved-2.d: Add sb relocation failure test.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-alu-bad-2.s: New test source.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldr-bad-2.s: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldrs-bad-2.s: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/group-relocs-ldc-bad-2.s: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/unresolved-2.s: Likewise.
	* ld-arm/arm-elf.exp: For group-relocs, drop section zero start
	definition.  Run the new tests.
