There are three head files(kallsyms.h, kernel.h and sections.h) which
include the kernel sections range check, let's make some cleanup and
unify them.

1. cleanup arch specific text/data check and fix address boundary check
   in kallsyms.h
2. make all the basic/core kernel range check function into sections.h
3. update all the callers, and use the helper in sections.h to simplify
   the code

After this series, we have 5 APIs about kernel sections range check in
sections.h

 * is_kernel_core_data()	--- come from core_kernel_data() in kernel.h
 * is_kernel_rodata()		--- already in sections.h
 * is_kernel_text()		--- come from kallsyms.h
 * is_kernel_inittext()		--- come from kernel.h and kallsyms.h
 * is_kernel()			--- come from kallsyms.h

v2:
- add ACK/RW to patch2, and drop inappropriate fix tag
- keep 'core' to check kernel data, suggestted by Steven Rostedt
  <rostedt@goodmis.org>, rename is_kernel_data() to is_kernel_core_data()
- drop patch8 which is merged
- drop patch9 which is resend independently

v1:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-arch/20210626073439.150586-1-wangkefeng.wang@huawei.com

Kefeng Wang (7):
  kallsyms: Remove arch specific text and data check
  kallsyms: Fix address-checks for kernel related range
  sections: Move and rename core_kernel_data() to is_kernel_core_data()
  sections: Move is_kernel_inittext() into sections.h
  kallsyms: Rename is_kernel() and is_kernel_text()
  sections: Add new is_kernel() and is_kernel_text()
  powerpc/mm: Use is_kernel_text() and is_kernel_inittext() helper

no need arch-specific text/data check.

The is_kernel_inittext/is_kernel_text/is_kernel function should not
include the end address(the labels _einittext, _etext and _end) when
check the address range, the issue exists since Linux v2.6.12.

Move core_kernel_data() into sections.h and rename it to
is_kernel_core_data(), also make it return bool value, then
update all the callers.

The is_kernel_inittext() and init_kernel_text() are with same
functionality, let's just keep is_kernel_inittext() and move
it into sections.h, then update all the callers.

The is_kernel[_text]() function check the address whether or not
in kernel[_text] ranges, also they will check the address whether
or not in gate area, so use better name.

The new is_kernel() check the kernel address ranges, and the
new is_kernel_text() check the kernel text section ranges.

Then use them to make some code clear.

Use is_kernel_text() and is_kernel_inittext() helper to simplify code,
also drop etext, _stext, _sinittext, _einittext declaration which
already declared in section.h.

Do you know what a gate area is?

Because I believe gate area is kernel text, so the rename just makes it
redundant and more confusing.

Perhaps this was a bug, and these functions should be checking the gate
area as well, as that is part of kernel text.

Yes, the gate area(eg, vectors part on ARM32, similar on x86/ia64) is 
kernel text.

I want to keep the 'basic' section boundaries check, which only check 
the start/end

of sections, all in section.h,  could we use 'generic' or 'basic' or 
'core' in the naming?

  * is_kernel_generic_data()	--- come from core_kernel_data() in kernel.h
  * is_kernel_generic_text()

The old helper could remain unchanged, any suggestion, thanks.

Because it looks like the check of just being in the range of "_stext"
to "_end" is just an internal helper, why not do what we do all over
the kernel, and just prefix the function with a couple of underscores,
that denote that it's internal?

  __is_kernel_text()

Then you have:

 static inline int is_kernel_text(unsigned long addr)
 {
	if (__is_kernel_text(addr))
 		return 1;
 	return in_gate_area_no_mm(addr);
 }

OK, thanks for your advise,  there's already a __is_kernel_text() in 
arch/x86/mm/init_32.c,

I will change it to is_x32_kernel_text() to avoid conflict on x86_32.
