Subject[PATCH v4 0/4] Use macros rather than hardcoding section names
Date
This patch series cleans up the kernel's explicit references to
.data.page_aligned, .bss.page_aligned, and .data.init_task in C and
assembly code to instead use the standard macros for that purpose.

Version 4 differs from version 3 in two ways:
- It is rebased on top of current kbuild-next/master
- __LINKER_SCRIPT__ was renamed to LINKER_SCRIPT

Version 3 differs from version 2 in two ways:
- The .data.init_task patch also updates the score architecture
- The powerpc __page_aligned_data patch was removed (since Benjamin
Herrenschmidt said he was taking it).

Version 2 differed from version 1 in that it added the kbuild patch,
fixing breakage in the x86 linker script caused indirectly by
including linux/linkage.h in x86's asm/cache.h.

This cleanup is in preparation for being able to change the names of
the .data.page_aligned and .bss.page_aligned sections to be
compatible with -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections (a prerequisite
for Ksplice).

Joe Perches (1):
Use new __init_task_data macro in arch init_task.c files.

Tim Abbott (3):
kbuild: Don't define ALIGN and ENTRY when preprocessing linker
scripts.
Use macros for .bss.page_aligned section.
Use macros for .data.page_aligned section.
