Subject[PATCH 3.16 011/133] asm/sections: add helpers to check for section data
3.16.51-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thierry Reding <treding@nvidia.com>

commit 979559362516bb0f5424505c607210ac054e30ae upstream.

Add a helper to check if an object (given an address and a size) is part
of a section (given beginning and end addresses). For convenience, also
provide a helper that performs this check for __init data using the
__init_begin and __init_end limits.
