Subject[PATCH 03/14] efi/libstub: arm64: force 'hidden' visibility for section markers
Date
To prevent the compiler from emitting absolute references to the section
markers when running in PIC mode, override the visibility to 'hidden' for
all contents of asm/sections.h

Cc: Matt Fleming <matt@codeblueprint.co.uk>
Tested-by: Matthias Kaehlcke <mka@chromium.org>
