[cfe-users] Linker error while linking DataFlowSanitizer to LLVM IR

I am using pre-built LLVM/Clang 3.8.0 binaries on Ubuntu 16.04.2, 64 bit. I
tried to lift a minimal program to LLVM IR, then link the IR to
DataFlowSanitizer libraries to produce executable code. In the second step,
the process throws a bunch of linker errors.


#include <sanitizer/dfsan_interface.h>
#include <assert.h>

int main(void) {
  int i = 1;

  dfsan_label i_label = dfsan_create_label("i", 0);
  dfsan_set_label(i_label, &i, sizeof(i));

  return 0;


clang -c -emit-llvm -fsanitize=dataflow test.c -o test.bc

clang -fsanitize=dataflow test2.bc -o test2

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/5.4.0/../../../x86_64-linux-gnu/Scrt1.o: In

clang-3.8: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see


Any idea what might I be doing wrong?
