SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] ARM: copypage-fa: add kto and kfrom to input operands list

NAK. Naked functions must never be inlined. Please add a "noinline"
attribute to the function rather than making things more complex.

The GCC manual states:

`naked'
Use this attribute on the ARM, AVR, MCORE, MSP430, NDS32, RL78, RX
and SPU ports to indicate that the specified function does not
need prologue/epilogue sequences generated by the compiler. It is
up to the programmer to provide these sequences. The only
^^^^^^^^
statements that can be safely included in naked functions are
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
`asm' statements that do not have operands. All other statements,
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
including declarations of local variables, `if' statements, and so
forth, should be avoided. Naked functions should be used to
implement the body of an assembly function, while allowing the
compiler to construct the requisite function declaration for the
assembler.

The 'I' attribute is fine here because it is a constant that is not
allowed to be in a register (and hence has no code generation side
effects.)

Adding operands for the input parameters, however, isn't going to
work around the fact that _this_ assembly is written to be out of
line and so it must never be inlined by the compiler.
