* bfd/peXXigen.c (_bfd_XXi_only_swap_filehdr_out): Only use a real
timestamp if --insert-timestamp was used.
* ld/pe-dll.c (fill_edata): Likewise.
* ld/emultempl/pe.em: Add the --insert-timestamp option.
* ld/emultempl/pep.em: Likewise for 64bit.
* ld/ld.texinfo: Document the --insert-timestamp option.
Approved - please apply - but ...
Strictly speaking there should be *two* changelog entries accompanying
this patch. One for bfd/ChangeLog and one for ld/ChangeLog. Plus there
should be no modification to the binutils/ChangeLog file as this is for
additions to that sub-directory.
It would be nice if at some point in the future you could create a
couple of testcases to make sure that this new functionality continues
to work into the future.
