Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for-4.9 48/53] MIPS: End asm function prologue macros with .insn
Date
From: Paul Burton <paul.burton@imgtec.com>

[ Upstream commit 08889582b8aa0bbc01a1e5a0033b9f98d2e11caa ]

When building a kernel targeting a microMIPS ISA, recent GNU linkers
will fail the link if they cannot determine that the target of a branch
or jump is microMIPS code, with errors such as the following:

mips-img-linux-gnu-ld: arch/mips/built-in.o: .text+0x542c:
Unsupported jump between ISA modes; consider recompiling with
interlinking enabled.
mips-img-linux-gnu-ld: final link failed: Bad value

or:

./arch/mips/include/asm/uaccess.h:1017: warning: JALX to a
non-word-aligned address

Placing anything other than an instruction at the start of a function
written in assembly appears to trigger such errors. In order to prepare
for allowing us to follow function prologue macros with an EXPORT_SYMBOL
invocation, end the prologue macros (LEAD, NESTED & FEXPORT) with a
.insn directive. This ensures that the start of the function is marked
as code, which always makes sense for functions & safely prevents us
from hitting the link errors described above.
