Commit Message

When glibc is built with branch protection (i.e. with a gcc configured
with --enable-standard-branch-protection), all glibc binaries should
be BTI compatible and marked as such.

It is easy to link BTI incompatible objects by accident and this is
silent currently which is usually not the expectation, so this is
changed into a link error. (There is no linker flag for failing on
BTI incompatible inputs so all warnings are turned into fatal errors
outside the test system when building glibc with branch protection.)

Unfortunately, outlined atomic functions are not BTI compatible in
libgcc (PR libgcc/96001), so to build glibc with current gcc use
'CC=gcc -mno-outline-atomics', this should be fixed in libgcc soon
and then glibc can be built and tested without such workarounds.

Is the outlined atomic present in any current released gcc? If so
should we add a configure handler to add -mno-outline-atomics for
such cases?

Besides that LGTM, thanks.

outlined atomics is supported for a while now (since
gcc-9 i think) but it is now the default in gcc-10.

i am testing patches to fix libgcc in gcc trunk and
then backport to gcc-10 branch.

my preference is to only support fixed gcc and use
the -mno-outline-atomics as a temporary workaround
so we can test the patches with gcc-10.1.0

it's not a good workaround for using the resulting
toolchain for building user code with branch protection
(which will have the same problem: silently dropping
bti protection) so i think it's better to fail the build.

Right, I think it should be ok to sign it with a build failure.
