    Subject[PATCH v2 0/8] clean up vdso-layout.lds.S
    Date
    The handling of various sections in the VDSO linker script
    looks pretty haphazard. This patch series cleans it up in
    these regards:

    - improve the coding style
    - remove superfluous sections
    - issue a linker error if a section is encountered which
    is known not to work
    - check that the .got section is empty, except for the
    three entries defined by the ABI
    - discard sections which are not useful to user-space

    Petr Tesarik (8):
    x86: Adjust the coding style of vdso-layout.lds.S
    x86: Remove .sdata from the vDSO linker script
    x86: Remove .dynbss from the vDSO linker script
    x86: add .broken section to the vDSO linker script
    x86: mark altinstr-related sections in vDSO as broken
    x86: mark some standard sections as broken in a vDSO
    x86: check the size of GOT in vDSO
    x86: remove unneeded section from the vDSO
