Subject[PATCH 4.4 72/75] ARM: ensure that processor vtables is not lost after boot
Date
From: Russell King <rmk+kernel@armlinux.org.uk>

Commit 3a4d0c2172bcf15b7a3d9d498b2b355f9864286b upstream.

Marek Szyprowski reported problems with CPU hotplug in current kernels.
This was tracked down to the processor vtables being located in an
init section, and therefore discarded after kernel boot, despite being
required after boot to properly initialise the non-boot CPUs.

Arrange for these tables to end up in .rodata when required.
