x86/build: Specify elf_i386 linker emulation explicitly for i386 objects
[ Upstream commit 927185c124d62a9a4d35878d7f6d432a166b74e3 ] The kernel uses the OUTPUT_FORMAT linker script command in it's linker scripts. Most of the time, the -m option is passed to the linker with correct architecture, but sometimes (at least for x86_64) the -m option contradicts the OUTPUT_FORMAT directive. Specifically, arch/x86/boot and arch/x86/realmode/rm produce i386 object files, but are linked with the -m elf_x86_64 linker flag when building for x86_64. The GNU linker manpage doesn't explicitly state any tie-breakers between -m and OUTPUT_FORMAT. But with BFD and Gold linkers, OUTPUT_FORMAT overrides the emulation value specified with the -m option. LLVM lld has a different behavior, however. When supplied with contradicting -m and OUTPUT_FORMAT values it fails with the following error message: ld.lld: error: arch/x86/realmode/rm/header.o is incompatible with elf_x86_64 Therefore, just add the correct -m after the incorrect one (it overrides it), so the linker invocation looks like this: ld -m elf_x86_64 -z max-page-size=0x200000 -m elf_i386 --emit-relocs -T \ realmode.lds header.o trampoline_64.o stack.o reboot.o -o realmode.elf This is not a functional change for GNU ld, because (although not explicitly documented) OUTPUT_FORMAT overrides -m EMULATION. Tested by building x86_64 kernel with GNU gcc/ld toolchain and booting it in QEMU.
