Yes. You could remove just the relocations for the debug sections,
but that's silly. If you add this to the top of
symfile_relocate_debug_section, it should fix the problem.
+ if (bfd_get_file_flags (abfd) & (EXEC_P | DYNAMIC))
+ return NULL;
GNU binutils doesn't create shared libraries that need relocations
applied any more. In fact, it hasn't for a while. Maybe we should
remove support for those quirky objects, since the --emit-relocs
variant seems more common and more useful.
Does anyone have an opinion?
