Subject[GIT pull] core udpates for 4.18
Linus,

please pull the latest core-urgent-for-linus git tree from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git core-urgent-for-linus

A single fix for objtool to address a bug in handling the cold subfunction
detection for aliased functions which was added recently. The bug causes
objtool to enter an infinite loop.

Thanks,

tglx
