SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] parisc: fix module loading failure of large modules (take 3)
[PATCH 2/2] parisc: fix module loading failure of large modules (take 3)

On 32bit (and sometimes 64bit) and with big kernel modules like xfs or
ipv6 the relocation types R_PARISC_PCREL17F and R_PARISC_PCREL22F may
fail to reach their PLT stub if we only create one big stub array for
all sections at the beginning of the core or init section.

With this patch we now instead add individual PLT stub entries
directly in front of the code sections where the stubs are actually
called. This reduces the distance between the PCREL location and the
stub entry so that the relocations can be fulfilled.

The kernel module loader will allocate as much memory in front
of the code code segment as we return in the sechdrs.sh_entsize field.

Tested with 32- and 64bit kernels.
