           Summary: extern __attribute__((weak)) gets turned into undefined
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: new bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: edwintorok at gmail.com
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu

The kernel uses genksyms to generate crcs, include/linux/module.h has this
/* Mark the CRC weak since genksyms apparently decides not to
 * generate a checksums for some symbols */

/* testcase */
extern void * __attribute__((weak)) __crc_init_mm;
static const unsigned long __kcrctab_init_mm __attribute__((__used__))
__attribute__((section("__kcrctab" "_unused"), unused)) = (unsigned long)
int main(void)
        return 0;

LLVM-gcc output:
$ /home/edwin/llvm-svn/install/bin/llvm-gcc foo.c
/tmp/cc2NMjnF.o:(__kcrctab_unused+0x0): undefined reference to `__crc_init_mm'
