Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2016-01-08 00:47:07 UTC
MIPS binary has a PT_DYNAMIC segment with RWE perms in the same page as PT_NOTE with R only; rtld cannot actually accommodate this.

There are 8 program headers, starting at offset 52

New revision: 293403
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/293403

  Revert r293201, r293202 (rtld: populate DT_DEBUG iff DYNAMIC segment is writable)

  It turns out MIPS binaries may have other oddities that can trigger a
  fault at startup.

Comment 2 Brooks Davis freebsd_committer 2016-01-12 00:37:09 UTC
It seems like fixing this wouldn't be too hard so long as we track the extent and permissions of the last mapping (I believe everyone relies on segments being sorted).  I'd argue that this is a linker/linker-script bug as well.
