Windows does not support linker option '/-no-whole-archive'
or '/whole-archive'. The patch removes them under Windows build.

Hi William,

We need to tell the linker to use whole archive somehow;
you write [1] that /WHOLEARCHIVE was required in the end.
There's no "Windows linker", there are clang and GCC linkers,
the latter supports --whole-archive, but the former needs it translated.
Argument translation between compilers is handled by meson.
I've filed a bug: https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/9296

Hi Dmitry,

Thank you!
One more thing, when I added /WHOLEARCHIVE, I hit some errors due to
macro definitions.
ex:
ws2_32.lib(WS2_32.dll) : error LNK2005: WS2_32_NULL_THUNK_DATA already
defined in mincore.lib(WS2_32.dll)
Shlwapi.lib(SHLWAPI.dll) : error LNK2005: __NULL_IMPORT_DESCRIPTOR
already defined in mincore.lib(api-ms-win-core
-com-l1-1-0.dll)
Iphlpapi.lib(IPHLPAPI.DLL) : error LNK2005:
__IMPORT_DESCRIPTOR_IPHLPAPI already defined in mincore.lib(IPHLPAPI.
see:
https://github.com/smadaminov/ovs-dpdk-meson-issues/issues/65

In the end, I have to add also:
-Wl,/FORCE:MULTIPLE

Thanks
William

Hi,

What is the conclusion for this patch?

Please don't apply this patch.

I think we're waiting for meson to fix it.
https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/9296

In the meantime, at OVS's meson build script,
I'm adding /WHOLEARCHIVE and /FORCE:MULTIPLE
when linking dpdk. So no need to fix it here.

Thanks
William
