Subject[patch 2/5] move WARN_ON() out of line
Subject: move WARN_ON() out of line
From: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com>
CC: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
CC: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>
CC: Olof Johansson <olof@lixom.net>
Acked-by: Matt Meckall <mpm@selenic.com>

A quick grep shows that there are currently 1145 instances of WARN_ON
in the kernel. Currently, WARN_ON is pretty much entirely inlined,
which makes it hard to enhance it without growing the size of the kernel
(and getting Andrew unhappy).

This patch build on top of Olof's patch that introduces __WARN,
and places the slowpath out of line. It also uses Ingo's suggestion
to not use __FUNCTION__ but to use kallsyms to do the lookup;
this saves a ton of extra space since gcc doesn't need to store the function
string twice now:

3936367 833603 624736 5394706 525112 vmlinux.before
3917508 833603 624736 5375847 520767 vmlinux-slowpath

15Kb savings...
