--- Comment #6 from Jim Wilson <wilson at gcc dot gnu.org> ---
You can create a patch with git diff and then attach it to the bug report.  It
needs to be mailed to the binutils list if it gets checked in, but you can
always ask someone else to do that for you.

Contributing a patch to Binutils requires an FSF copyright assignment.  I don't
see an assignment in your name, and it isn't clear who you work for.  Though
from github I see you are in Beijing, so Alibaba and Huawei would be my first
two guesses.  I see GCC assignments for both of them, but not Binutils
assignments.  If you are serious about trying to contribute to GNU toolchain,
then you should try to get a copyright assignment.  Meanwhile, it might be
simpler if someone who already has an assignment writes a patch.

Generally, I agree with Nelson Chu's github comment that we would prefer to
avoid a ldlang.c change if we can.  We might be able to get a better result by
changing ldlang.c instead of the RISC-V port, but a change to ldlang.c requires
a lot more testing because it affects all targets.
