Subject[PATCH 3.16 125/178] powerpc/64: Fix flush_(d|i)cache_range() called from modules
3.16.46-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Oliver O'Halloran <oohall@gmail.com>

commit 8f5f525d5b83f7d76a6baf9c4e94d4bf312ea7f6 upstream.

When the kernel is compiled to use 64bit ABIv2 the _GLOBAL() macro does
not include a global entry point. A function's global entry point is
used when the function is called from a different TOC context and in the
kernel this typically means a call from a module into the vmlinux (or
vice-versa).

There are a few exported asm functions declared with _GLOBAL() and
calling them from a module will likely crash the kernel since any TOC
relative load will yield garbage.

flush_icache_range() and flush_dcache_range() are both exported to
modules, and use the TOC, so must use _GLOBAL_TOC().
