Subject[PATCH 9/9] s390: switch to dynamic percpu allocator
Date
64bit s390 shares the same problem with percpu symbol addressing from
modules. It needs assembly magic to force GOTENT reference when
building module as the percpu address will be outside the usual 4G
range from the module text. Simiarly to alpha, this can be solved by
using the weak attribute.

This patch makes s390 use weak attribute instead and switch to dynamic
percpu allocator. Please note that weak attribute is not added if
!SMP as percpu variables behave exactly the same as normal variables
on UP.

Compile tested. Generation of GOTENT reference verified.

This patch is based on Ivan Kokshaysky's alpha percpu patch.

[ Impact: use dynamic percpu allocator ]
