/* This file is part of the vtable verification feature (for a
detailed description of the feature, see comments in
vtable-verify.c). The vtable verification feature creates
certain global symbols that need to be read-write sometimes during
program execution, and read-only at others. It uses 'mprotect' to
change the memory protections of the pages on which these variables
are stored. In order to not affect the protections of other
program variables, these variables are put into a special named
section, ".vtable_map_vars", which is page-aligned at the start,
and which is padded with a page-sized amount of zeros at the end.
To make this section page aligned, we create a special symbol,
"_vtable_map_vars_start" which we make the very first thing that
goes into the section. That is defined in vtv_start.c (which
contains nothing else). vtv_start.c gest compiled into
vtv_start.o, and vtv_start.o gets inserted into the link line
immediately after crtbegin.o, if the program is compiled with
-fvtable.verify.
In order to pad the ".vtable_map_vars" section with a page-sized
amount of zeros at the end, there is a second symbol,
_vtable_map_vars_end. This file defines that symbol (and only this
symbol). This second symbol is a page-sized array of chars,
zero-filled, and is the very last thing to go into the section.
When the GCC driver inserts vtv_start.o into the link line (just
after crtbegin.o) it also inserts vtv_end.o into the link line,
just before crtend.o. This has the desired effect of making our
section page-aligned and page-size paded, ensuring that no other
program data lands on our pages. */

You can’t perform that action at this time.
