STM32MP1 support available in SW4STM32

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world.
And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4; you can download a short video showcasing this on the ac6-tools website (registration required).

System Workbench for STM32


generating position independent code problem on STM32F4

Dear ST support,

The same issue is met here:

STM32 GCC generated code with -fPIC option ONLY uses indirect addressing through the Global Offset Table to access global variables.
Function calls are still preformed using an absolute address to the function instead of using an address found in the GOT.

In addition, the generated code addresses the GOT with an absolute address instead of using an offset to the GOT.

As a result, it appears “fPIC” functionality is NOT fully implemented. Or maybe some other compilation options should be used ?

Otherwise, is the full implementation scheduled ?

Note: our current project includes a driver for which the code must NOT change. To be free from the flash mapping, the idea was to have the application copy the got just after the driver in flash at a fixed “offset” (and not an absolute address). But with the function call and the GOT addressing state of the art, it seems not possible.

Thanks for your help,
Best regards,
Sylvain
