Simple question about RTL

Hello Pavel,
The RTEMS version is 4.11-release.
Today, I download the latest 4.11-release with "fix cache corruption bugs" patch, and build it. I use the new tool-chain and bsp to build my application and the bug remains. 
And I check my appdl-symbol-table.o via arm-rtems4.11-nm, no "hello_world" (which is the function I want to jump to) found. Is it correct? I follow your instructions to get .prelink, to get symbol table, and to get the final image. Do you have any hints on this? Thank you.

Best wishes,
Tim Tian

what is the RTEMS sources version?
I have tested RTL on Zynq about last week and it worked correctly.
I use actual RTEMS master git sources.
If you use RTEMS build before next patch then it is highly probable
that you experience failures on stargets with cache enabled.
  libdl/rtl-obj.c: synchronize cache after code relocation.

There is even another patch which synchronizes and cleans cache during startup
  arm/xilinx_zynq: ensure that cache is cleaned and MMU disabled when initialization starts.

It should not be crucial for UP (non SMP) use. But it would worth
to retest your actual RTEMS master version.
If you are working with stable RTEMS 4.11 pre-release branch
then problems are not fixed there.
I think that it would worth to consider whole cache related
issues update for 4.11 branch as well.
Best wishes,
