Hi All,

I have a doubt about the check we have put inside IsTextShdr() .

STATIC
BOOLEAN
IsTextShdr (
  Elf_Shdr *Shdr
  )
{
  return (BOOLEAN) ((Shdr->sh_flags & (SHF_WRITE | SHF_ALLOC)) ==
SHF_ALLOC);
}


We are observing one issue where while generate EFI using GenFW in EDK2
because test/data section offset is different than calculated
mCoffSectionsOffset when scanning sections.
I run GenFW with a failure dll in my local after adding some logs into
GenFW. and found that “mCoffSectionsOffset” for data section seems not
to have expected value due to
“.note.gnu.property” size. Because compiled dll has “.note.gnu.property”
section with alloc flag and GenFW thinks that it’s a text section if
alloc flag is set.
So its size is added to the mCoffSectionsOffset.

Could you please give us an advice whether we can fix IsTextShdr()
function like below ?
