This has had quite a bit of testing now, so I'm looking for people willing to try out a 2.23.2 patch too:

I'll get down to it. One note about the previous one: --gc-sections option to ld caused segfaults. I'll try to come up with a minimal scenario for repeating this.

RE: gc-section segfaults

It's entirely possible that this "feature" wasn't used by the period correct gcc at that time and the segfaults are due to that. Was this with gcc4 you saw the issue, or you were using gcc8?

gcc8 at least. I can do more checking. The bug might not be specific to this version of binutils.
