This includes the patch for
IMPALA-3507 and the fix for https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=19520
The second bug affects the compatibility of libImpalaUdf.a with older versions of binutils < 2.26. Various people use this library via the Impala UDF development kit with their system binutils, which choke on the new relocations R_X86_64_GOTPCRELX and R_X86_64_REX_GOTPCRELX. Symptoms include failure to link, or failure to strip binaries as part of packaging. Older versions of strip complain about relocation 42 and produce a bogus relocation R_X86_64_NONE.
Binutils 2.26 has no way to disable these incompatible relocations. The fix in 2.26.1 adds configure and assembler flags to disable the relocations.
