Hi Guys ,

We are trying to enable LTO on  our  code base for clang(3.8)  using
gold linker  , and we are  stuck with below error

bash-4.1$ /arm-install/bin/armeb-linux-gnueabi-ld.gold --be8

/arm-install/bin/armeb-linux-gnueabi-ld.gold: --be8: unknown option

And found that ,Be8 (byte invariant addressing)  is not supported in
the gold linker,

Questions is ,how do we go from here ?

Do be8 format is very mandatory for  armv7(big endian) ? Or we can
proceed without –be8 option    ??
Or What else options we have

Any comments or suggestion are appreciated here guys ??

Thank you
