Subject: Incorrect dynamic linker patch in gcc patch for MIPS


I've already filled a report for this at,
but I thought it would be good to mention that on the mailing list as

The issue is that the musl build system, for MIPS soft float, installs a
dynamic linker symbolic link that contains a -sf suffix, but the gcc
patches for musl do not take into account this additional suffix.

For sure it's
that needs fixing, but I'm not sure on which gcc option should the
condition be added. Is it something like:

-#define MUSL_DYNAMIC_LINKER "/lib/ld-musl-mips" MUSL_DYNAMIC_LINKER_E ".so.1"
+#define MUSL_DYNAMIC_LINKER "/lib/ld-musl-mips" MUSL_DYNAMIC_LINKER_E "%{msoft-float:-sf}.so.1"
