	* som.h (struct som_exec_data): New structure to hold exec
	info that must be preserved when running objcopy/strip.
	(struct somdata): Add new "exec_data" field and accessor
	macro.  Add some comments on how the various fields are used.
	(som_section_data_struct): Make is_space and is_subspace bitfields.
	Delete unused subspace_index.  All references now use the
	target_index field within the section structure itself.

	* som.c (make_unique_section): Delete unused declaration.
	(som_bfd_copy_private_bfd_data): New function.
	(som_object_setup): Allocate space for and save exec information
	that needs to be copied during objcopy/strip.
	(som_mkobject): Do not allocate space for a file header here.
	It is not used when only reading SOM objects.
	(som_prep_headers): Allocate space for and attach a file header

	header as sizes of loadable subspaces are computed.  Carefully
	preserve alignments when building executables.  Actually write the
	exec after all the fields are filled in.

        * Better long-filename handling.  Reads SOM ABI compliant extended
	names, but doesn't quite write compliant extended names yet.
	* som.c (som_slurp_extended_name_table): Delete function.  The
	generic code will handle things correctly.
	(som_slurp_armap): Seek to the beginning of the next member.
	(normalize): New function.

	elf32-hppa.c, elf32-mips.c, linker.c, som.c, sunos.c: If malloc(0)
	returns NULL, it is not an error.  It's possible that some of
	these checks are not necessary (because the size can never be
	zero), but putting in the checks is the conservative thing to do
	in light of the fact that some of these malloc calls replaced
	unchecked alloca calls, in which a zero argument would work fine.

	* reloc.c (bfd_generic_get_relocated_section_contents): Don't fail
	if malloc (0) fails.  bfd_canonicalize_reloc returning 0 is not a

	* elfcode.h (NAME(bfd_elf,write_object_contents)): Don't use space

	* aoutf1.h (4 places): Use a simple #if on ARCH_SIZE, rather than
	all that convoluted stuff with NAME, CAT3, etc.  The convoluted

Mon Mar 14 11:41:23 1994  Jeffrey A. Law  (

	* som.c (som_prep_for_fixups): A relocation involving the section
	symbol for the *ABS* section is really a relocation involving

Wed Mar  9 17:17:53 1994  Jim Kingdon  (

	* libbfd-in.h: Remove alloca cruft.  It was missing some necessary
	cruft (like the #pragma alloca for AIX).
	In addition to that problem, the C alloca calls xmalloc, which

	Add FIXMEs for unresolved problems.  Use enums rather than

Mon Jan  3 11:09:28 1994  Jim Kingdon  (

	* aout-target.h, netbsd386.c: Replace NO_SWAP_MAGIC with SWAP_MAGIC,
	and do the swapping here rather than calling ntohl from the N_*
	macros.  This cleans up assumptions about the size of a host long,
	the existence to ntohl, etc.
