x86/boot/compressed: Relax sed symbol type regex for LLVM ld.lld
commit bc310baf2ba381c648983c7f4748327f17324562 upstream. The final build stage of the x86 kernel captures some symbol addresses from the decompressor binary and copies them into zoffset.h. It uses sed with a regular expression that matches the address, symbol type and symbol name, and mangles the captured addresses and the names of symbols of interest into #define directives that are added to zoffset.h The symbol type is indicated by a single letter, which we match strictly: only letters in the set 'ABCDGRSTVW' are matched, even though the actual symbol type is relevant and therefore ignored. Commit bc7c9d620 ("efi/libstub/x86: Force 'hidden' visibility for extern declarations") made a change to the way external symbol references are classified, resulting in 'startup_32' now being emitted as a hidden symbol. This prevents the use of GOT entries to refer to this symbol via its absolute address, which recent toolchains (including Clang based ones) already avoid by default, making this change a no-op in the majority of cases. However, as it turns out, the LLVM linker classifies such hidden symbols as symbols with static linkage in fully linked ELF binaries, causing tools such as NM to output a lowercase 't' rather than an upper case 'T' for the type of such symbols. Since our sed expression only matches upper case letters for the symbol type, the line describing startup_32 is disregarded, resulting in a build error like the following arch/x86/boot/header.S:568:18: error: symbol 'ZO_startup_32' can not be undefined in a subtraction expression init_size: .long (0x00000000008fd000 - ZO_startup_32 + (((0x0000000001f6361c + ((0x0000000001f6361c >> 8) + 65536) - 0x00000000008c32e5) + 4095) & ~4095)) # kernel initialization size Given that we are only interested in the value of the symbol, let's match any character in the set 'a-zA-Z' instead.
