x86 vDSO: generate vdso-syms.lds
Roland McGrath [Wed, 30 Jan 2008 12:30:40 +0000 (13:30 +0100)]
This patch adds a new way of extracting symbols from the built vDSO image.
This is much simpler and less fragile than using ld -R; it removes the
need to control the DSO layout quite so exactly.  I was clearly unduly
distracted by clever ld uses when I did the original vDSO implementation.
