SubjectRe: [PATCH] [powerpc-next] Fix powerpc64 alignment of .toc section in kernel modules
Date
Hi Desnes,

Am I right that Alan largely wrote this patch?

If so it should probably be From: him, so that he is the author in the
git log.

This needs to be:

KBUILD_LDFLAGS_MODULE += -T $(srctree)/arch/powerpc/kernel/module.lds

Otherwise building with O=../build fails with:

ld: cannot open linker script file arch/powerpc/kernel/module.lds: No such file or directory

I'll fix it up.

I think it's more typical in the kernel to write -256 as ~0xff.

Again I can fix it up.

cheers
