Subject[PATCH 3.16 124/178] powerpc/kernel: Use kprobe blacklist for asm functions
3.16.46-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nicholas Piggin <npiggin@gmail.com>

commit 6f698df10cb24d466b9a790b9daedb9e7bcd5d2a upstream.

Rather than forcing the whole function into the ".kprobes.text" section,
just add the symbol's address to the kprobe blacklist.

This also lets us drop the three versions of the_KPROBE macro, in
exchange for just one version of _ASM_NOKPROBE_SYMBOL - which is a good
cleanup.
