configure: Allow LD to be LLD 9.0.0 or above

When using LLD (LLVM linker) as the linker, configure prints a confusing

    *** These critical programs are missing or too old: GNU ld

LLD>=9.0.0 can build glibc with very few patches. (LLD 8.0.0 needs one
workaround for -Wl,-defsym=_begin=0). LLD>=9.0.0 is available on many
distributions, so just set the baseline version to 9.0.0.

csu: Skip ARCH_SETUP_IREL if _dl_relocate_static_pie applied IRELATIVE relocations

For static pie, _dl_relocate_static_pie applies IRELATIVE relocations so
ARCH_SETUP_IREL should not apply relocations again.

LLD defines __rela_iplt_start/__rela_iplt_end regardless of -no-pie or
-pie, so in an LLD linked static pie, ARCH_SETUP_IREL would otherwise
apply the relocations in the range of [__rela_iplt_start,

elf: Replace a --defsym trick with an object file to be compatible with LLD

The existing code specifies -Wl,--defsym=malloc=0 and other malloc.os
definitions before libc_pic.a so that libc_pic.a(malloc.os) is not
fetched. This trick is used to avoid multiple definition errors which
would happen as a chain result:

  dl-allobjs.os has an undefined __libc_scratch_buffer_set_array_size
  __libc_scratch_buffer_set_array_size fetches libc_pic.a(scratch_buffer_set_array_size.os)
  libc_pic.a(scratch_buffer_set_array_size.os) has an undefined free
  free fetches libc_pic.a(malloc.os)
  libc_pic.a(malloc.os) has an undefined __libc_message
  __libc_message fetches libc_pic.a(libc_fatal.os)

  libc_fatal.os will cause a multiple definition error (__GI___libc_fatal)
  >>> defined at dl-fxstatat64.c
  >>> /tmp/p/glibc/Release/elf/dl-allobjs.os:(__GI___libc_fatal)
  >>> defined at libc_fatal.c
  >>> libc_fatal.os:(.text+0x240) in archive /tmp/p/glibc/Release/libc_pic.a

LLD processes --defsym after all input files, so this trick does not
suppress multiple definition errors with LLD. Split the step into two
and use an object file to make the intention more obvious and make LLD

This is conceptually more appropriate because --defsym defines a SHN_ABS
symbol while a normal definition is relative to the image base.

for discussions about the --defsym semantics.

elf: Fix tests that rely on for cross-compiling

For configurations with cross-compiling equal to 'maybe' or 'no',
ldconfig will not run and thus the will not be created
on the container testroot.pristine.

This lead to failures on both tst-glibc-hwcaps-prepend-cache and
tst-ldconfig-ld_so_conf-update on environments where the same
compiler can be used to build different ABIs (powerpc and x86 for

This patch addas a new test-container hook,, that
triggers a ldconfig execution prior the test execution.

Checked on x86_64-linux-gnu and i686-linux-gnu.
