Subject[PATCH 4.9 81/96] objtool, modules: Discard objtool annotation sections for modules
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@redhat.com>

commit e390f9a9689a42f477a6073e2e7df530a4c1b740 upstream.

The '__unreachable' and '__func_stack_frame_non_standard' sections are
only used at compile time. They're discarded for vmlinux but they
should also be discarded for modules.

Since this is a recurring pattern, prefix the section names with
".discard.". It's a nice convention and vmlinux.lds.h already discards
such sections.

Also remove the 'a' (allocatable) flag from the __unreachable section
since it doesn't make sense for a discarded section.
