Subject[PATCH 07/13] x86, vmlinux.lds: unify data output sections
Date
For 32 bit this is a non-functional change.

For 64 bit the following functional changes is introduced:
- .data.page_aligned has moved
- .data.cacheline_aligned has moved
- .data.read_mostly has moved
- ALIGN() moved out of output section for .data.cacheline_aligned
- ALIGN() moved out of output section for .data.page_aligned

Notice that 32 bit and 64 bit has different location of _edata.
.data_nosave is 32 bit only as 64 bit is special due to PERCPU.
