#15275 new bug

AArch64 validation fails with many invalid relocations

Test ways requiring the RTS linker (e.g. ext-interp) are failing due to the assert(isInt64(32, addend)); assertion in the COMPAT_R_AARCH64_ADR_PREL_PG_HI21 of encodeAddendAarch64. One such relocation is,

OFFSET           TYPE              VALUE
000000000000001c R_AARCH64_ADR_PREL_PG_HI21  stg_upd_frame_info

although there are plenty of others.

It seems to me that this may just be the result of us not building with -fPIC by default. It seems like fixing this would likely resolve this issue.

Sadly just enabling -fPIC by default (using DynFlags.default_PIC) seems to make no difference. The problematic relocations are still generated.

Linkers are truly awful creations.

Is there any workaround for this? I'm hitting this while cross-compiling to aarch64 running iserv in qemu.

Sadly, not that I know of. I have previously observed this when using I'm frankly quite surprised that R_AARCH64_ADR_PREL_PG_HI21 given that we are compiling with -fPIC. I rather suspect this may be (yet another) linker bug. I'm currently trying a build linked with ld.bfd to see if it exhibits the same issue.
