Subject[PATCH v2 1/9] x86/asm: Mark all top level asm statements as .text
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

With gcc toplevel assembler statements that do not mark themselves
as .text may end up in other sections. I had LTO boot crashes because
various assembler statements ended up in the middle of the initcall
section. It's also a latent problem without LTO, although it's
currently not known to cause any real problems.

According to the gcc team it's expected behavior.

Always mark all the top level assembler statements as text
so that they switch to the right section.
