--bpabi linker option
Creates a Base Platform Application Binary Interface (BPABI) ELF file for passing to a platform-specific post-linker.
The BPABI model defines a standard-memory model that enables interoperability of BPABI-compliant files across toolchains. When this option is selected:
Procedure Linkage Table (PLT) and Global Offset Table (GOT) generation is supported.
The default value of the --pltgot option is direct.
A dynamically linked library (DLL) placed on the command-line can define symbols.
The BPAPI model does not support scatter-loading. However, scatter-loading is supported in the Base Platform model.
Weak references in the dynamic symbol table are permitted only if the symbol is defined by a DLL placed on the command-line. You cannot place an unresolved weak reference in the dynamic symbol table with the IMPORT steering file command.
You cannot use this option if an object file contains execute-only sections.
