Subject[PATCH 3.18 03/24] gcov: add support for GCC 5.1
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Lorenzo Stoakes <lstoakes@gmail.com>

commit 3e44c471a2dab210f7e9b1e5f7d4d54d52df59eb upstream.

Fix kernel gcov support for GCC 5.1. Similar to commit a992bf836f9
("gcov: add support for GCC 4.9"), this patch takes into account the
existence of a new gcov counter (see gcc's gcc/gcov-counter.def.)

Firstly, it increments GCOV_COUNTERS (to 10), which makes the data
structure struct gcov_info compatible with GCC 5.1.

Secondly, a corresponding counter function __gcov_merge_icall_topn (Top N
value tracking for indirect calls) is included in base.c with the other
gcov counters unused for kernel profiling.
