Makefile: avoid using linker for embedding guest_init binaries
At the moment we use the linker to convert the compiled guest_init binary into an ELF object file, so it can be embedded into the kvmtool binary and accessed later easily at runtime. Now this has two problems: 1) This approach does not work for MIPS, because the linker defaults to a different ABI than the compiler, so the GCC generated object files are not compatible with this converted binary. 2) The size symbol as it's used at the moment in the object file is subject to relocation, which leads to wrong results when using PIE builds, which is now the default for some distributions. Fix those two problems at once by using some shell tools to create a C source file containing the guest_init binary, which then gets compiled into a proper object file with the normal compiler and its flags. The size of the guest init binaries is now simply a variable, which does not get mangled at all. Signed-off-by: Marc Zyngier <email@example.com> Signed-of...
