SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] kexec_file: Adjust declaration of kexec_purgatory
Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> writes:

> Defining kexec_purgatory as a zero-length char array upsets compile
> time size checking. Since this is built on a per-arch basis, define
> it as an unsized char array (like is done for other similar things,
> e.g. linker sections). This silences the warning generated by the future
> CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE, which did not like the memcmp() of a "0 byte"
> array. This drops the __weak and uses an extern instead, since both
> users define kexec_purgatory.
