Description

Bootloader crashes before starting OS when RTEMS is compiled using gcc-3.3.3 or above. gcc generates new types of .data sections (.data.rel and .data.rel.local), as well as variations on .rodata. Problem is ppcboot.lds does not include the new section variations, it only specifies .rodata and .data, so portions of the bootloader data are mislocated, causing the crash.

Release:
rtems-4.6.2

Environment:
motorola_shared targets, bootloader link issue
