I've been working on a run time linking system for C++ in windows x86
which uses clang and llvm. As part of the run time linking system some
system libraries like printf are linked into code which is loaded into
memory dynamically at run time (the address of the external function is
written in at the call site as you would expect for function
relocations). I ran into a problem where printf stopped working
correctly in the dynamically linked code. I recently updated llvm to the
latest repo version and printf has somehow started working again. I
don't understand how this is possible. Because as far as I know, the
system function printf has nothing to do with the version of llvm or
clang being used and I didn't change anything else. printf is imported
from msvcrt.lib. How can the integrity of this function in the library
msvcrt be affected by updating the llvm/clang code? I'm sure that it
isn't possible. Anyone have any ideas or theories about how this could
have happened?
