Subject[RFC PATCH 0/5] livepatch: add support on arm64
Date
This patchset propose a method for gcc -mfentry feature(profile
before prologue) implementation for arm64, and propose the livepatch
implementation for arm64 based on this feature.
The gcc implementation about this feature will be post to the gcc
community soon.

With this -mfentry feature, the entry of each function like:

foo:
mov x9, x30
bl __fentry__
mov x30, x9
[prologue]
...

The x9 is a callee corruptible register, and the __fentry__ function
is responsible to protect all registers, so it can be used to protect
the x30. And the added two instructions which is register mov operation
have ralatively small impact on performance.

This patchset has been tested on arm64 platform.
