Comment 1 Michael Catanzaro 2020-11-02 17:21:21 UTC
Hi, any idea what has gone wrong here?

Could it be related to debuginfod? Or to LTO?

Comment 2 Keith Seitz 2020-11-02 17:25:07 UTC
It's probably a rebase error or even the deubginfod backport. I will investigate.

Comment 3 Keith Seitz 2020-11-02 21:03:10 UTC
Yeah, it's the debuginfod backport. New rawhide build coming.

While Kevin would prefer to rebase Fedora 33 to gdb-10.1, eliminating the offending patch
altogether, I think this important enough to warrant backporting.
