Probably last working version was:


Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2015-08-04 18:09:20 UTC
I confirmed that downgrading to grub2-2.02-0.16.fc22 fixes the problem.

Comment 4 Peter Robinson 2015-08-05 16:47:08 UTC
From rjones on IRC:

<rjones> lemme find the suspect patch, one min
<rjones> we didn't conclusively prove anything, but the suspect was that ^ patch being dropped in a rebase

Comment 5 Peter Jones 2015-08-05 17:08:43 UTC
That patch is there; it's in the upstream repo, so it's part of grub-2.02-beta2-to-origin-master.patch , rather than being one of /our/ patches, and so individually applied.

Comment 6 Peter Jones 2015-08-05 17:15:35 UTC
Oh, I see - it's actually a patch to generate more debuginfo, which causes .eh_frame to exist.  In the long run the answer is probably to /handle/ the relocations, but for now I'll back the patch out.
