[Bug 1590955] Re: vdso is missing dynamic symbol tables


Turns out that the broken commit was only ever applied to unstable, and
xenial includes a version which omits the changes to the vsdo link
flags. Marking invalid since the bug doesn't apply to any released

** Changed in: linux (Ubuntu)

  vdso is missing dynamic symbol tables

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Due to a mistake in "disable -pie when gcc has it enabled by default"
  the -no-pie flag appears after -shared when linking vdso64.so.dbg.
  These flags are mutually exclusive, and the last one in the compiler
  options takes precedence. The intention was that -no-pie would be
  placed at the start of the flags so that a later -shared would take
  precedence, and the situation now is that the vdso lacks dynamic
  symbol tables, breaking some applications.
