Subject[PATCH 8/9] alpha: switch to dynamic percpu allocator
Date
Alpha implements custom SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR for modules because percpu
area can be located far away from the 4G area where the module text is
located. The custom SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR forces GOT usage using ldq
instruction with literal relocation; however, the relocation can't be
used with dynamically allocatd percpu variables. Fortunately, similar
result can be achieved using weak attribute on percpu variable
declarations and definitions, which is allowed with previous changes.

This patch makes alpha use weak attribute instead and switch to
dynamic percpu allocator.

asm/tlbflush.h was getting linux/sched.h via asm/percpu.h which no
longer needs it. Include linux/sched.h directly in asm/tlbflush.h.

Compile tested. Generation of litereal relocation verified.

This patch is based on Ivan Kokshaysky's alpha percpu patch.

[ Impact: use dynamic percpu allocator ]
