Hi, Maynard,

It is resloved now. It is beacuse of a local loop label. We need to stripe these local labels in case of confusing oprofile. Thanks for your kindly support.

Hi, Maynard,
The attachment is the output with '--verbose=all' option. I've just copy the output related to the encoder.out.
Thanks and Regards.

Using the 'file' command will just tell you whether or not encoder.out is
stripped.  Probably isn't, since you wrote it yourself, but humor me and check
it anyway.  If 'file' says "not stripped", then run opreport with
'--verbose=all' option.  This produces a *lot* of output, so redirect it to a
file.  Then search for 'op_bfd ctor' for the encoder.out binary, and copy all
output until you reach the next 'op_bfd ctor' for a different binary.  Paste
into a file and attach that file to your reply to this message.
