Subject[ 005/109] powerpc/ftrace: Fix assembly trampoline register usage
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: roger blofeld <blofeldus@yahoo.com>

commit fd5a42980e1cf327b7240adf5e7b51ea41c23437 upstream.

Just like the module loader, ftrace needs to be updated to use r12
instead of r11 with newer gcc's.
