Subject[RFC PATCH v2 0/3] Speed booting by sorting ORC unwind tables at build time
Date
From: Shile Zhang <shile.zhang@linux.alibaba.com>

This series tries to sort the ORC unwind tables in vmlinux link phase at
build time, help to speed up kernel boot. It's significant for boot time
sensitive products, such as embedded device in IoT, or serverless in
cloud.

Thanks!

Changes from RFC v2:
- removed new added Kconfig and runtime sort code, advised by Josh Poimboeuf.
- some minor refactoring.

v1:

Shile Zhang (3):
scripts: Add sortorctable to sort ORC unwind tables
kbuild: Sort ORC unwind tables in vmlinux link phase
x86/unwind/orc: remove run-time ORC unwind tables sort
