00:13<ChmEarl>building xen-4.15.1 in Jammy, patched to HEAD of staging-4.15
00:14<ChmEarl>the EFI build is deleted, saying `xen.efi generation disabled`
00:21<ChmEarl>this build worked 2 weeks ago as is
00:28<ChmEarl>https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xen/+bug/1958389
00:28<ChmEarl>they say the EFI build segfaults for them
00:35<ChmEarl>fishing around in xen/ tree I don't see this message any place, I can't believe that there is a patch in Jammy on the loader causing it
00:35<ChmEarl>`xen.efi generation disabled` where did this message come from?
00:36-!-jgross_ is now known as jgross
00:36<ChmEarl>let me guess, RedHat
00:43<ChmEarl>Debian-xen also found a similar bug: https://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2022-01/msg01037.html
00:51<ChmEarl>checking my build log shows no segfault from the loader during the EFI linking
00:52<ChmEarl>the binutils source willfully tampered with my build
00:52<ChmEarl>my CPU has no avx2

12:24<ChmEarl>in xen/arch/x86_64/Makefile I forced `export XEN_BUILD_EFI := y` with a sed edit, it still whacks the EFI build

16:32<ChmEarl>fc36/rawhide; less than 1 week ago I built only the hypervisor part of xen-4.16.0 and the EFI build was OK
16:33<ChmEarl>using the Almalinux SRPM
16:33<ChmEarl>the binutils version in rawhide is behind the Jammy/DebExperimental
18:39<ChmEarl>despite the failed EFI build, I have xen-4.15.1 w/qemu-6.1 up in Jammy, xen patched to @ and Jammy latest
