just saw this...looks like this is broken for gcc < 4.5. Anyways, the
patch below fixes the compilation by making arch_init_ideal_nop5()
static (and moving its definition ahead of its usage). I'm not quite
sure why this makes the compiler happy...applies on top of this series.

thanks,

make arch_init_ideal_nop5() static. fixes compilation error:

arch/x86/kernel/alternative.c: Assembler messages:
