Subject[PATCH -tip 0/4] Add section address checking helper
Date
Hi,

This series adds some address checking helpers in sections.h
so that each one doesn't need to implement it individually.
This series contains basically cleanup patches. Each patch
replaces some checking code with helper function but changes
no behavior.

- [1/4]: x86: add in_entry_text() helper to cleanup kprobes
and unwind_frame code.
- [2/4]: arm: move in_exception_text() to asm/sections.h and
cleanup using memory_contains().
- [3/4]: arm64: move in_exception_text() to asm/sections.h and
cleanup using memory_contains().
- [4/4]: add in_init_text() and in_core_text() and use it in
kernel/extable.c and kernel/kallsyms.c, also this
cleanup core_kernel_data using memory_contains().

By the way, I found core_kernel_text() and is_kernel_text()
has different behavior, is_kernel_text() checks arch dependent
text area and in_gate_area_no_mm(), but core_kernel_text()
doesn't. (and core_kernel_text() checks inittext section
while booting up)
Can we ignore this difference or better to merge it?

Thank you,
