I recently added 64-bit PowerPC for RTEMS using the ELFv2 ABI. On RTEMS, the
applications are statically linked with the operating system. I am now a bit
surprised be a linker behaviour. I have a big library containing a network
stack with many features. On other targets the linker just picks individual
objects from the library to resolve the dependencies. However, on the 64-bit
PowerPC the linker seems to pull in the complete library somehow. I see in
the linker map file lines like this:

./libbsd.a(utils.c.18.o)      (print_string)
You're only showing part of the complete line (which is no doubt
split).  What you show is the reference, the line above it would be
the included object.

I am not sure if this line is incomplete. With a bit more context I have:

./libbsd.a(ip6_input.c.18.o) (_bsd_ip6_forward)
./libbsd.a(rtems-kernel-nexus.c.18.o) (ofw_bus_map_intr_desc)
./libbsd.a(hostname.c.12.o) (rtems_mdns_gethostname_handler)
./libbsd.a(utils.c.18.o)      (print_string)
./libbsd.a(rtems-kernel-page.c.18.o) (rtems_bsd_get_allocator_domain_size)
./libbsd.a(rtems-kernel-init.c.18.o) (rtems_bsd_get_task_priority)

My interpretation is for example rtems-bsd-get-task-priority.c.18.o is included due to a reference to rtems_bsd_get_task_priority in rtems-kernel-init.c.18.o.

I don't know how to interpret the utils.c.18.o line.
