[Qemu-devel] MINGW: Unable to link multiboot.img + strnlen missing

I have recently updated my git snapshot and had 2 problems:

1. There is no strnlen function in MINGW (not sure if it has been
added recently as I might be using an outdated version...)

2. I was not able to link multiboot.bin using mingw:

for d in pc-bios/optionrom; do \
make -C $d || exit 1 ; \
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/abc024/work/qemu/pc-bios/optionrom'
gcc -o signrom -g -Wall signrom.c
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Werror -fomit-frame-pointer
-fno-builtin -I/home/abc024/work/qemu -o multiboot.o -c multiboot.S
ld --oformat binary -Ttext 0 -o multiboot.img multiboot.o
D:\mingw\bin\ld.exe: cannot perform PE operations on non PE output
file 'multiboot.img'.
make[1]: *** [multiboot.img] Error 1
rm multiboot.o
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/abc024/work/qemu/pc-bios/optionrom'
make: *** [roms] Error 1

And it looks that this workaround did the trick:

diff --git a/pc-bios/optionrom/Makefile b/pc-bios/optionrom/Makefile
old mode 100644
new mode 100755
index c4a6f42..f414eba

Obviously objcopy needs to be defined in the config.mak file.
