Subject: [PATCH x86 for review II] [1/39] i386: move startup_32() in text.head section
Date: Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:37:46 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070212837.963446000@suse.de> (raw)


From: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@in.ibm.com>

o Entry startup_32 was in .text section but it was accessing some init
  data too and it prompts MODPOST to generate compilation warnings.

WARNING: vmlinux - Section mismatch: reference to .init.data:boot_params from
.text between '_text' (at offset 0xc0100029) and 'startup_32_smp'
WARNING: vmlinux - Section mismatch: reference to .init.data:boot_params from
.text between '_text' (at offset 0xc0100037) and 'startup_32_smp'
WARNING: vmlinux - Section mismatch: reference to
.init.data:init_pg_tables_end from .text between '_text' (at offset
0xc0100099) and 'startup_32_smp'

o Can't move startup_32 to .init.text as this entry point has to be at the
  start of bzImage. Hence moved startup_32 to a new section .text.head and
  instructed MODPOST to not to generate warnings if init data is being
  accessed from .text.head section. This code has been audited.

o SMP boot up code (startup_32_smp) can go into .init.text if CPU hotplug
  is not supported. Otherwise it generates more warnings

WARNING: vmlinux - Section mismatch: reference to .init.data:new_cpu_data from
.text between 'checkCPUtype' (at offset 0xc0100126) and 'is486'
WARNING: vmlinux - Section mismatch: reference to .init.data:new_cpu_data from
.text between 'checkCPUtype' (at offset 0xc0100130) and 'is486'
