There are two possible fixes:
For one, the kernel could be changed to accept note sections located
anywhere in the binary. This however does not apply to already deployed
systems, which could face problems when upgrading.
Second, we could ensure that the note tag always winds up in the first
page of a binary. We take this approach by changing our linker scripts
to sort the .note.ABI-tag section to the front.
I was bitten by this (ELF binary type "0" not known) (two weeks ago),
running quickworld on world build after problem uncovered.
I don't understand. All new binaries should have a correct section
ordering. Could you give me a bit more details on the failure scenario?
