Hi Thomas,

Sure. There are only two places where volatile is missed (inside functions) and
would make sense to add it. Unfortunately it doesn't help much:

So, I looked further and noticed that multiboot header is missed in the flat
        ".section .init \n\t"

        ".code32 \n\t"

        "mb_magic = 0x1BADB002 \n\t"
        "mb_flags = 0x0 \n\t"

        "# multiboot header \n\t"
        ".long mb_magic, mb_flags, 0 - (mb_magic + mb_flags) \n\t"

But I can see it in the object file. So, I believe linker didn't place .init
section at 0x1000 despite realmode.lds instruction:

    . = 16K;
    stext = .;
    .text : { *(.init) *(.text) }
    . = ALIGN(4K);
    .data : { *(.data) *(.rodata*) }
    . = ALIGN(16);
    .bss : { *(.bss) }
    edata = .;

If I read it correctly, given the segment in realmode.elf:
Program Headers:
  Type           Offset   VirtAddr   PhysAddr   FileSiz MemSiz  Flg Align
  LOAD           0x001000 0x00004000 0x00004000 0x03c90 0x03c90 R E 0x1000

Here's multiboot header in GCC-compiled binary:
00001000: 02b0ad1b 00000000 fe4f52e4 66b83412  .........OR.f.4.

Here's the same location in clang-compiled binary:
00001000: 04000000 14000000 03000000 474e5500  ............GNU.

Here's verbose invocation of linker by clang:

$ clang-10 -v -m32 -nostdlib -o x86/realmode.elf -Wl,-m,elf_i386 -Wl,-T,/home/roolebo
/dev/kvm-unit-tests/x86/realmode.lds x86/realmode.o

(BTW, I'm surprised to see -dynamic-linker being set, it has little sense for
the tests but that's likely because -static is not passed explicitly)

And if I pass --print-map option to the linker I can see that GNU build id is
placed at 0x4000:

$ clang-10 -m32 -nostdlib -o x86/realmode.elf -Wl,-M -Wl,-m,elf_i386 -Wl,-T,/home/roo

So, a workaround for that could be adding '-Wl,--build-id=none' to the
makefile rule for realmode.elf. Then multiboot magic is placed properly
at 0x4000 instead of 0x4030. Unfortunately it doesn't help with the
test :-)
