[PATCH 4/4] pc-bios/s390-ccw: Don't use __bss_start with the "larl" inst

From: Thomas Huth
Subject: [PATCH 4/4] pc-bios/s390-ccw: Don't use __bss_start with the "larl" instruction
Date: Mon, 26 Jun 2023 15:21:38 +0200

start.S currently cannot be compiled with Clang 16 and binutils 2.40:

 ld: start.o(.text+0x8): misaligned symbol `__bss_start' (0xc1e5) for
     relocation R_390_PC32DBL

According to the built-in linker script of ld, the symbol __bss_start
can actually point *before* the .bss section and does not need to have
any alignment, so in certain situations (like when using the internal
assembler of Clang), the __bss_start symbol can indeed be unaligned
and thus it is not suitable for being used with the "larl" instruction
that needs an address that is at least aligned to halfwords.
The problem went unnoticed so far since binutils <= 2.39 did not
check the alignment, but starting with binutils 2.40, such unaligned
addresses are now refused.

Fix it by using the real start address of the .bss section instead.
