From: Mike Frysinger on 26 May 2010 04:50
The recent commit 1f0ce8b3dd667dca7 which moved the ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN
default into the global header inadvertently broke FLAT for a bunch of
systems. Blackfin systems now fail on any FLAT exec with:
Unable to read code+data+bss, errno 14
When your /init is a FLAT binary, obviously this can be annoying ;).
This stems from the alignment usage in the FLAT loader. The behavior
before was that FLAT would default to ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN only if it was
defined, and this was only defined by arches when they wanted a larger
alignment value. Otherwise it'd default to pointer alignment. Arguably,
this is kind of hokey that the FLAT is semi-abusing defines it shouldn't.
But let's ignore that and simply ignore min alignment values of 0.
