It looks like you didn’t base your work on the current copy of the patch
posted to this thread [1]. That copy already includes all but two of your
changes (arch/s390/kernel/vdso.c and arch/sparc/kernel/init_task.c, in
which the lines in question were introduced by recent commits), along with
some others.

This change is wrong; you need to specify
.section "", "aw"
like we do in [1], or else the assembler will not set the ALLOC flag on
that section, leading to a crash at runtime.

We will send a new copy of the patch that includes your two changes
