Subject[PATCH v7 00/10] ftrace with regs + live patching for ppc64 LE (ABI v2)
Changes since v6:
* include Petr's patch, on popular demand ;)
* move #ifdefs out of functions for readability;
introduce static helper functions instead.
* No more literal binary instructions in hex,
at least not added by this patch set.
* add compile time checker to detect the presence
of known-good -mprofile-kernel support.
* limit Kconfig / compile to the configurations really supported:
+ (static) FTRACE with -pg
+ DYNAMIC_FTRACE with -pg with or without -mprofile-kernel
(depending on the compiler)
+ DYNAMIC_FTRACE_WITH_REGS only with -mprofile-kernel
(will error out if the compiler is broken)

Changes since v5:
* extra "std r0,LRSAVE(r1)" for gcc-6
This makes the code compiler-agnostic.
* Follow Petr Mladek's suggestion to avoid
redefinition of HAVE_LIVEPATCH

Changes since v4:
* change comment style in entry_64.S to C89
(nobody is using assembler syntax comments there).
* the bool function restore_r2 shouldn't return 2,
that's a little confusing.
* Test whether the compiler supports -mprofile-kernel
and only then define CC_USING_MPROFILE_KERNEL
* also make the return value of klp_check_compiler_support
depend on that.

Major changes since v3:
* the graph tracer works now.
It turned out the stack frame it tried to manipulate does not
exist at that point.
* changes only needed in order to support -mprofile-kernel are now
in a separate patch, prepended.
* Kconfig cleanup so this is only selectable on ppc64le.


Petr Mladek (1):
livepatch: Detect offset for the ftrace location during build

Torsten Duwe (9):
ppc64 (le): prepare for -mprofile-kernel
ppc64le FTRACE_WITH_REGS implementation
ppc use ftrace_modify_all_code default
ppc64 ftrace_with_regs configuration variables
ppc64 ftrace_with_regs: spare early boot and low level
ppc64 ftrace: disable profiling for some functions
ppc64 ftrace: disable profiling for some files
Implement kernel live patching for ppc64le (ABIv2)
Enable LIVEPATCH to be configured on ppc64le and add livepatch.o if it
is selected.
