tools/imagetool: remove linker script
Commit a93648d197df48fa46dd55f925ff70468bd81c71 introduced linker generated lists for imagetool which is the base for some host tools (mkimage, dumpimage, et al.). Unfortunately some host tool chains do not support the used type of linker scripts. Therefore this commit broke these host-tools for them, namely FreeBSD and Darwin (OS/X). This commit tries to fix this. In order to have a clean distinction between host and embedded code space we need to introduce our own linker generated list instead of re-using the available linker_lists.h provided functionality. So we copy the implementation used in linux kernel script/mod/file2alias.c which has the very same problem (cause it is a host tool). This code also comes with an abstraction for Mach-O binary format used in Darwin systems. Signed-off-by: Andreas Bießmann <> Cc: Guilherme Maciel Ferreira <>
