Not quite what I had in mind... let me show you:

/* Bytes needed for a section: default is just the section size. */
unsigned int __attribute__((weak))
arch_module_section_size(struct module *mod, Elf_Shdr *sechdrs, unsigned int sec)
{
return sechdrs[sec].sh_size;
}
Otherwise I'd have called it "arch_module_extra_size()".

Cheers,
Rusty.
