SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/24] Rename kernel's magic sections for compatibility with -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections

Aside from patch 17, which I would prefer that Haavard review, these
patches look correct (and patch 17 can be safely dropped). Please
consider the rest of Denys' patches in this patch series

Acked-by: Tim Abbott <>

The patches still apply fine on Linus' current master. There are no merge
conflicts with linux-next's current master, but we will need to do
something to merge with

"Blackfin: initial XIP support"

in linux-next, which introduces a direct reference to .data.percpu.* (not
using the normal PERCPU macros so they can put .data.percpu content inside
the section). That conflict looks easy to deal with by adding
a new macro to handle this case (CCing the author and blackfin maintainer;
it's possible that this blackfin patch is going in soon, in which case we
can just rebase these patches on top).

Michal, what are your thoughts on this patch series? The kbuild tree
would be a reasonable path for merging these patches.
