         impact (bsc#1112535)
       - CVE-2018-18484: Fixed stack exhaustion in the C++ demangling functions

         _bfd_add_merge_section when attempting to merge sections with large
         alignments, causing denial of service (bsc#1113252)
       - CVE-2018-18607: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference in elf_link_input_bfd

       - CVE-2018-19931: Fixed a heap-based buffer overflow in

       - CVE-2018-20651: Fixed a denial of service via a NULL pointer dereference
         in elf_link_add_object_symbols in elflink.c (bsc#1121034)
       - CVE-2018-20671: Fixed an integer overflow that can trigger a heap-based

       - enable xtensa architecture (Tensilica lc6 and related)
       - Use -ffat-lto-objects in order to provide assembly for static libs
       - Fixed some LTO build issues (bsc#1133131 bsc#1133232).
       - riscv: Don't check ABI flags if no code section
       - Fixed a segfault in ld when building some versions of pacemaker
         (bsc#1154025, bsc#1154016).
       - Add avr, epiphany and rx to target_list so that the common binutils can
         handle all objects we can create with crosses (bsc#1152590).
       Update to binutils 2.32:
       * The binutils now support for the C-SKY processor series.
       * The x86 assembler now supports a -mvexwig=[0|1] option to control
         encoding of VEX.W-ignored (WIG) VEX instructions. It also has a new
         -mx86-used-note=[yes|no] option to generate (or not) x86 GNU property
       * The MIPS assembler now supports the Loongson EXTensions R2 (EXT2), the
         Loongson EXTensions (EXT) instructions, the Loongson Content Address
         Memory (CAM) ASE and the Loongson MultiMedia extensions Instructions
         (MMI) ASE.
       * The addr2line, c++filt, nm and objdump tools now have a default limit on
         the maximum amount of recursion that is allowed whilst demangling
         strings.  This limit can be disabled if necessary.
       * Objdump's --disassemble option can now take a parameter, specifying the
         starting symbol for disassembly.  Disassembly will continue from this
         symbol up to the next symbol or the end of the function.
       * The BFD linker will now report property change in linker map file when
         merging GNU properties.
       * The BFD linker's -t option now doesn't report members within archives,
         unless -t is given twice.  This makes it more useful when generating a
         list of files that should be packaged for a linker bug report.
       * The GOLD linker has improved warning messages for relocations that refer
         to discarded sections.
       - Improve relro support on s390 [fate#326356]
       - Fix broken debug symbols (bsc#1118644)
       - Handle ELF compressed header alignment correctly.
