   An update that solves 8 vulnerabilities, contains three
   features and has 6 fixes is now available.

Description:

   This update for binutils fixes the following issues:

   binutils was updated to version 2.35.1 (jsc#ECO-2373)

   Additional branch fixes applied on top of 2.35.1:

   * Fixes PR26520, aka [bsc#1179036], a problem in addr2line with certain
     DWARF variable descriptions.
   * Also fixes PR26711, PR26656, PR26655, PR26929, PR26808, PR25878,
     PR26740, PR26778, PR26763, PR26685, PR26699, PR26902, PR26869, PR26711
   * The above includes fixes for dwo files produced by modern dwp, fixing
     several problems in the DWARF reader.

   Update to binutils 2.35.1 and rebased branch diff:

   * This is a point release over the previous 2.35 version, containing bug
     fixes, and as an exception to the usual rule, one new feature.  The new
     feature is the support for a new directive in the assembler: ".nop".
     This directive creates a single no-op instruction in whatever encoding
     is correct for the target architecture.  Unlike the .space or .fill this
     is a real instruction, and it does affect the generation of DWARF line
     number tables, should they be enabled.

   Update to binutils 2.35:

   * The assembler can now produce DWARF-5 format line number tables.
   * Readelf now has a "lint" mode to enable extra checks of the files it is
     processing.
   * Readelf will now display "[...]" when it has to truncate a symbol name.
     The old behaviour - of displaying as many characters as possible, up to
     the 80 column limit - can be restored by the use of the
     --silent-truncation
     option.
   * The linker can now produce a dependency file listing the inputs that it
     has processed, much like the -M -MP option supported by the compiler.

   - fix DT_NEEDED order with -flto [bsc#1163744]


   Update to binutils 2.34:

   * The disassembler (objdump --disassemble) now has an option to generate
     ascii art thats show the arcs between that start and end points of
     control flow instructions.
   * The binutils tools now have support for debuginfod.  Debuginfod is a
     HTTP service for distributing ELF/DWARF debugging information as well as
     source code.  The tools can now connect to debuginfod servers in order
     to download debug information about the files that they are processing.
   * The assembler and linker now support the generation of ELF format files
     for the Z80 architecture.

   - Add new subpackages for libctf and libctf-nobfd.
   - Disable LTO due to bsc#1163333.
   - Includes fixes for these CVEs: bsc#1153768 aka CVE-2019-17451 aka
     PR25070 bsc#1153770 aka CVE-2019-17450 aka PR25078

   - fix various build fails on aarch64 (PR25210, bsc#1157755).

   Update to binutils 2.33.1:

   * Adds support for the Arm Scalable Vector Extension version 2 (SVE2)
     instructions, the Arm Transactional Memory Extension (TME) instructions
     and the Armv8.1-M Mainline and M-profile Vector Extension (MVE)
     instructions.
   * Adds support for the Arm Cortex-A76AE, Cortex-A77 and Cortex-M35P
     processors and the AArch64 Cortex-A34, Cortex-A65, Cortex-A65AE,
     Cortex-A76AE, and Cortex-A77 processors.
   * Adds a .float16 directive for both Arm and AArch64 to allow encoding of
     16-bit floating point literals.
   * For MIPS, Add -m[no-]fix-loongson3-llsc option to fix (or not) Loongson3
     LLSC Errata.  Add a --enable-mips-fix-loongson3-llsc=[yes|no] configure
     time option to set the default behavior. Set the default if the
     configure option is not used to "no".
   * The Cortex-A53 Erratum 843419 workaround now supports a choice of which
     workaround to use.  The option --fix-cortex-a53-843419 now takes an
     optional argument --fix-cortex-a53-843419[=full|adr|adrp] which can be
     used to force a particular workaround to be used. See --help for AArch64
     for more details.
   * Add support for GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI and
     GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_PAC  in ELF GNU program properties in the
     AArch64 ELF linker.
   * Add -z force-bti for AArch64 to enable GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI
     on output while warning about missing GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI
     on inputs and use PLTs protected with BTI.
   * Add -z pac-plt for AArch64 to pick PAC enabled PLTs.
   * Add --source-comment[=] option to objdump which if present,
     provides a prefix to source code lines displayed in a disassembly.
   * Add --set-section-alignment =
     option to objcopy to allow the changing of section alignments.
   * Add --verilog-data-width option to objcopy for verilog targets to
     control width of data elements in verilog hex format.
   * The separate debug info file options of readelf (--debug-dump=links and
     --debug-dump=follow) and objdump (--dwarf=links and
     --dwarf=follow-links) will now display and/or follow multiple links if
      more than one are present in a file.  (This usually happens when gcc's
      -gsplit-dwarf option is used). In addition objdump's
      --dwarf=follow-links now also affects its
     other display options, so that for example, when combined with
     --syms it will cause the symbol tables in any linked debug info files to
      also be displayed.  In addition when combined with
     --disassemble the --dwarf= follow-links option will ensure that any
      symbol tables in the linked files are read and used when disassembling
      code in the main file.
   * Add support for dumping types encoded in the Compact Type Format to
     objdump and readelf.
   - Includes fixes for these CVEs: bsc#1126826 aka CVE-2019-9077 aka
     PR1126826 bsc#1126829 aka CVE-2019-9075 aka PR1126829 bsc#1126831 aka
