Subject[PATCH 16/21] lto: Add __noreorder and mark initcalls __noreorder
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

gcc 5 has a new no_reorder attribute that prevents top level
reordering only for that symbol.

Kernels don't like any reordering of initcalls between files, as several
initcalls depend on each other. LTO previously needed to use
-fno-toplevel-reordering to prevent boot failures.

Add a __noreorder wrapper for the no_reorder attribute and use
it for initcalls.
