[PATCH 4.19 28/46] x86/vdso: Pass --eh-frame-hdr to the linker

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Dec 28 2018 - 07:23:48 EST

4.19-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Alistair Strachan <astrachan@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit cd01544a268ad8ee5b1dfe42c4393f1095f86879 upstream.


379d98ddf413 ("x86: vdso: Use $LD instead of $CC to link")

accidentally broke unwinding from userspace, because ld would strip the
.eh_frame sections when linking.

Originally, the compiler would implicitly add --eh-frame-hdr when
invoking the linker, but when this Makefile was converted from invoking
ld via the compiler, to invoking it directly (like vmlinux does),
the flag was missed. (The EH_FRAME section is important for the VDSO
shared libraries, but not for vmlinux.)

Fix the problem by explicitly specifying --eh-frame-hdr, which restores
parity with the old method.

See relevant bug reports for additional info:
