    Subject[26/63] x86: Fix binutils-2.21 symbol related build failures
    2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    ------------------

    From: Sedat Dilek <sedat.dilek@googlemail.com>

    commit 2ae9d293b14d17f35eff624272cfecac7979a2ee upstream.
    [only 1/2 of the upstream commit was needed for stable - gkh]

    New binutils version 2.21.0.20110302-1 started checking that the symbol
    parameter to the .size directive matches the entry name's
    symbol parameter, unearthing two mismatches:

    AS arch/x86/kernel/acpi/wakeup_rm.o
    arch/x86/kernel/acpi/wakeup_rm.S: Assembler messages:
    arch/x86/kernel/acpi/wakeup_rm.S:12: Error: .size expression with symbol `wakeup_code_start' does not evaluate to a constant

    arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S: Assembler messages:
    arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S:1421: Error: .size expression with
    symbol `apf_page_fault' does not evaluate to a constant

    The problem was discovered while using Debian's binutils
    (2.21.0.20110302-1) and experimenting with binutils from
    upstream.

    Thanks Alexander and H.J. for the vital help.
