section attribute conflicts with constructor

Created: 09/May/14 10:04 PM   Updated: 10/May/14 10:55 AM
Component/s: C frontend, i386 target
Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: None

Environment: NetBSD/i386

 Description  « Hide
The 'constructor' and 'section' attributes have a conflicting effect. The following code example

void __attribute__((__section__(".text.startup"), __constructor__)) foo(void) { }

when compiled with "pcc -S foo.c" produces

        .section .text.startup,"ax",@progbits
        .align 4
        .globl foo
        .type foo,@function
        pushl %ebp
        movl %esp,%ebp
        .size foo,.-foo
        .section .text.startup,"ax",@progbits
        .align 4
        .long foo
        .ident "PCC: pcc 1.1.0.DEVEL 20140509 for netbsd-i386"

without the section attribute, the reference is placed in the correct section '.ctors' with "aw" flags

Fixed. Now con/destructors are set fixed so that special sections cannot iverride.
