    SubjectRE: [PATCH 05/15] arm: convert to use __HEAD and HEAD_TEXT macros.

    ia64 doesn't seem to care ... I changed the one use of .text.head
    to be just .text. There are a couple of new "section mismatches"
    (start_ap -> start_secondary and start_ap -> start_kernel), but
    it still boots.

    The start_ap code is still needed for hotplug cpu on ia64. So .text.init
    won't work for me.
