Re: [PATCH v2] ARM: Replace catch of noread sections by section name by a section attribute letter.

Hi Mickael,

2016-01-12 Mickael Guene <>

     * elf32-arm.c ((elf32_arm_special_sections): Remove catch of noread
     section using '.text.noread' pattern.

2016-01-12 Mickael Guene <>

     * config/obj-elf.c (obj_elf_change_section) : Allow arm section with
     SHF_ARM_NOREAD section flag.
     * config/tc-arm.h (md_elf_section_letter) : Implement this hook to
     handle letter 'y'.
     (arm_elf_section_letter) : Declare it.
     * config/tc-arm.c (arm_elf_section_letter): Handle letter 'y' to set
     SHF_ARM_NOREAD section flag.
     * doc/c-arm.texi (ARM section attribute 'y'): Document it.

2016-01-12  Terry Guo  <>

     * gas/arm/section-execute-only.s: New test case.
     * gas/arm/section-execute-only.d: Expected output.

2016-01-12 Mickael Guene <>

     * ld-arm/thumb1-noread-not-present-mixing-two-section.s: Add 'y'
     attribute usage.
     * ld-arm/thumb1-noread-present-one-section.s: Likewise.
     * ld-arm/thumb1-noread-present-two-section.s: Likewise.
     * ld-arm/thumb1-input-section-flag-match.s: Likewise.

2016-01-19 Mickael Guene <>

     * readelf.c (get_elf_section_flags): Display y letter for section
     with SHF_ARM_NOREAD section flag in readelf section output.
     (process_section_headers): Add y letter in readelf section output
     key mapping for ARM architecture.

Approved and applied.  I had to make one small fix however:  The function arm_elf_section_letter was being used in gas even when not targeting an ELF based system (eg arm-pe).  I took care of this for you.

Also you missed one small update: objdump did not recognise or display the new section attribute.  I included a fix for this in the patch that was checked in.
