Hi Andy, Kees,

This is not a good patch. See the commit where this was
introduced:

[PATCH] relocatable kernel: Fix kallsyms on avr32 after relocatable kernel changes

o On some platforms like avr32, section init comes before .text and
not necessarily a symbol's relative position w.r.t _text is positive.
In such cases assembler detects the overflow and emits warning. This
patch fixes it.

Did you just break avr32?

And absolute symbols are supposed to be handled in the other branch:

for (i = 0; i < table_cnt; i++) {
if (toupper(table[i].sym[0]) != 'A') {
if (_text <= table[i].addr)
printf("\tPTR\t_text + %#llx\n",
table[i].addr - _text);
else
printf("\tPTR\t_text - %#llx\n",
_text - table[i].addr);
} else {
printf("\tPTR\t%#llx\n", table[i].addr);
}
}

__per_cpu_start is not an absolute symbol anyway.

You need to fix this properly.
Rusty.
