#14554 new defect

PLUGINS: ELF loader doesn't handle mixed ARM and Thumb code

Reported by: ccawley2011 Owned by: sev-
Priority: high Component: Ports
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


The Nintendo DS port is compiled as Thumb code, and links with an ARM build of Newlib. However, the ELF loader doesn't properly handle relocations where ARM code in the plugin is called from Thumb code, which results in a crash due to the program counter jumping to an invalid address.

The workaround isn’t a permanent solution - a proper solution would be to handle the necessary relocations correctly in the ELF loader.
