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
