(diff) ← Older revision | Latest revision (diff) | Newer revision → (diff)

we should seriously consider making Gold the default linker for everything except glibc and the kernel

Why would glibc and kernel have to be excluded? Are there are known Gold bugs which only affect these two packages? Please provide a reference.

Interestingly, says: It had been reported in the past that the Linux kernel was broken if it was linked with Gold. That bug has been fixed (as of 11/3/2009).
