scripts/ Remove check_objcopy() and $can_use_local
When building ARCH=riscv allmodconfig with llvm-objcopy, the objcopy version warning from this script appears: WARNING: could not find objcopy version or version is less than 2.17. Local function references are disabled. The check_objcopy() function in scripts/ is set up to parse GNU objcopy's version string, not llvm-objcopy's, which triggers the warning. Commit 799c43415442 ("kbuild: thin archives make default for all archs") made binutils 2.20 mandatory and commit ba64beb17493 ("kbuild: check the minimum assembler version in Kconfig") enforces this at configuration time so just remove check_objcopy() and $can_use_local instead, assuming --globalize-symbol is always available. llvm-objcopy has supported --globalize-symbol since LLVM 7.0.0 in 2018 and the minimum version for building the kernel with LLVM is 10.0.1 so there is no issue introduced: Link: Link: Reviewed-by: Nick Desaulniers <> Signed-off-by: Nathan Chancellor <> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt (VMware) <>
