Subject: [PATCH v2 2/3] MIPS: VDSO: Move disabling the VDSO logic to Kconfig
Date: Sun, 19 Apr 2020 13:21:27 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200419202128.20571-2-natechancellor@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200419202128.20571-1-natechancellor@gmail.com>

After commit 9553d16fa671 ("init/kconfig: Add LD_VERSION Kconfig"), we
have access to GNU ld's version at configuration time. As a result, we
can make it clearer under what configuration circumstances the MIPS VDSO
needs to be disabled.

This is a prerequisite for getting rid of the MIPS VDSO binutils
warning and linking the VDSO when LD is ld.lld. Wrapping the call to
ld-ifversion with CONFIG_LD_IS_LLD does not work because the config
values are wiped away during 'make clean'.
