[Buildroot] [PATCH v1] boot/syslinux: fix gcc-10.x compile

Peter Seiderer ps.report at gmx.net
Sun Mar 7 17:47:53 UTC 2021


Add two patches ([1], [2]) taken from the fedora syslinux package ([3]) to fix
compile/linking with gcc-10.x compiler.

[1] https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/syslinux/raw/rawhide/f/0005-Workaround-multiple-definition-of-symbol-errors.patch
[2] https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/syslinux/raw/rawhide/f/0006-Replace-builtin-strlen-that-appears-to-get-optimized.patch
[3] https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/syslinux/tree/rawhide

Signed-off-by: Peter Seiderer <ps.report at gmx.net>

Notes:
 - possible follow-up would be a buildroot syslinux package version
   bump to upstream syslinux-6.04-pre4 (or git master), dropping
   all current patches and importing all current fedora patches
   instead (and/or check for duplicates)
 - [4] and [5] advice to use 6.04-pre1 and avoid 6.04-pre2/6.04-pre3
   and [6] to avoid 6.04-pre4
 - not manny updates on the official git [7], but a wiki page
   [8] mentioning various needed patches
