Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 069/101] ia64: fix module loading for gcc-5.4
Date
From: Sergei Trofimovich <slyfox@gentoo.org>

[ Upstream commit a25fb8508c1b80dce742dbeaa4d75a1e9f2c5617 ]

Starting from gcc-5.4+ gcc generates MLX instructions in more cases to
refer local symbols:

https://gcc.gnu.org/PR60465

That caused ia64 module loader to choke on such instructions:

fuse: invalid slot number 1 for IMM64

The Linux kernel used to handle only case where relocation pointed to
slot=2 instruction in the bundle. That limitation was fixed in linux by
commit 9c184a073bfd ("[IA64] Fix 2.6 kernel for the new ia64 assembler")
See

http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1433

This change lifts the slot=2 restriction from the kernel module loader.

Tested on 'fuse' and 'btrfs' kernel modules.
