Subject[PATCH 00/11] jump label v7
Hi,

Based on David Miller's suggestion this version re-works the architecture
interfaces for jump labels. I have also added a documentation file, and
re-freshed the patchset against the latest -tip tree.

The new architecture interface (quoting from the docs file), is as follows:

"
4) architecture interface

There are a few functions and macros which arches must implement in order to
take advantage of this optimization. As previously mentioned, if there is no
architecture support we simply fall back to a traditional, load, test, and
jump sequence.

* add "HAVE_ARCH_JUMP_LABEL" to arch/<arch>/Kconfig to indicate support

* #define JUMP_LABEL_NOP_SIZE, arch/x86/include/asm/jump_label.h

* #define "JUMP_LABEL(tag, label, cond)", arch/x86/include/asm/jump_label.h

* add: void arch_jump_label_transform(struct jump_entry *entry, enum jump_label_type type)
and
const u8 *arch_get_jump_label_nop(void)

see: arch/x86/kernel/jump_label.c

* finally add a definition for "struct jump_entry". This must be done in a
separate .h file, b/c the modpost.c code uses this definition to sort the
the jump label tabel in the vmlinux, so that it does not have to be sorted at
runtime. see: arch/x86/include/asm/jump_entry.h
"

David, I re-worked the sparc64 to match the updated interfaces. The code should
hopefully compile now, although I did not test the sparc bits.

thanks,

-Jason
