Subject[PATCH 37/74] lto, KVM: Don't assume asm statements end up in the same assembler file
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

The VMX code references a local assembler label between two inline
assembler statements. This assumes they both end up in the same
assembler files. In some experimental builds of gcc this is not
necessarily true, causing linker failures.

Replace the local label reference with a more traditional asmlinkage
extern.

This also eliminates one assembler statement and
generates a bit better code on 64bit: the compiler can
use a RIP relative LEA instead of a movabs, saving
a few bytes.
