- CVE-2019-1010180: Fixed an out of bound memory access that could lead to crashes (bsc#1142772)

- enable xtensa architecture (Tensilica lc6 and related)

- Use -ffat-lto-objects in order to provide assembly for static libs (bsc#1141913).

- 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 notes.

- 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.
