Hi. It's my third time in kernel development. Previously I developed toy kernels with C (GCC) and Rust.
This time I want to give a try to LLVM/Clang, as it is much easier to cross-compile.
I followed Bare Bones tutorial. For cross-compiling Assembly and C source files I added
-target i686-none-elf
flags to clang. It compiled successfully.

But I stuck at linking step. First I run this command:
clang -T linker.ld -o myos.bin -ffreestanding -O2 -nostdlib boot.o kernel.o -lgcc

And It gave me this error
clang: warning: argument unused during compilation: '-T linker.ld' [-Wunused-command-line-argument]
boot.o : fatal error LNK1107: invalid or corrupt file: cannot read at 0x2A0

After I tried -target i686-none-elf and -fuse-ld=lld-link flags. But it doesn't work.
Any idea about how can we link final kernel binary?

With clang, you will need to add
to the linker options to fix that error. So for example,

Hope this helps.
