    Subject[PATCH 0/9] jump label v6

    Refresh of jump labeling patches aginst -tip tree. For bacground see:

    I believe I've addressed all the reviews from v5.

    Changes in v6:

    * I've moved Steve Rostedt's 'ftrace_dyn_arch_init()' to alternative.c to
    put it into a common area for used by both ftrace and jump labels. By
    default we put a 'jmp 5' in the nop slot. Then, when we detect the best
    runtime no-op we patch over the 'jmp 5' with the appropriate nop.

    * build time sort of the jump label table. The jump label table is more
    optimally accessed if the entries are continguous. Sorting the table
    accomplishes this. Do the sort at build-time. Adds a '-j' option to
    'modpost' which replaces the vmlinux, with a sorted jump label section vmlinux.
    I've tested this on x86 with relocatable and it works fine there as well. Note
    that I have not sorted the jump label table in modules. This is b/c the jump
    label names can be exported by the core kernel, and thus I don't have them
    available at buildtime. This could be solved by either finding the correct
    ones in the vmlinux, or by embedding the name of the jump label in the module
    tables (and not just a pointer), but the module tables tend to be smaller, and
    thus there is less value to this kind of change anyway. The kernel continues to
    do the sort, just in case, but at least for the vmlinux, this is just a
    verfication b/c the jump label table has already been sorted.

    * added jump_label_text_reserved(), so that other routines that want to patch
    the code, can first verify that they are not stomping on jump label addresses.



    Jason Baron (8):
    jump label: base patch
    jump label: x86 support
    jump label: tracepoint support
    jump label: add module support
    jump label: move ftrace_dyn_arch_init to common code
    jump label: sort jump table at build-time
    jump label: initialize workqueue tracepoints *before* they are
    jump label: jump_label_text_reserved() to reserve our jump points
