Thanks for doing these kinds of consolidations Sam, most of
us arch maintainers really appreciate it.

Looking at these patches reminds me of a quirk in the generic
RODATA definition:

> #define RODATA \
> . = ALIGN(4096); \
> .rodata : AT(ADDR(.rodata) - LOAD_OFFSET) { \

It uses ALIGN(4096) which is likely supposed to be something
like ALIGN(PAGE_SIZE). Perhaps we should handle this by
definiting a LD_PAGE_SIZE at the top of vmlinux.ld.S files
that need a value other than 4096, and define the default of
4096 in asm-generic/

If you could take care of this I'd really appreciate it.
