Subject[PATCH v7 05/25] arm64: Build vDSO with -ffixed-x18
Date
From: Peter Collingbourne <pcc@google.com>

The vDSO needs to be build with x18 reserved in order to accommodate
userspace platform ABIs built on top of Linux that use the register
to carry inter-procedural state, as provided for by the AAPCS.
An example of such a platform ABI is the one that will be used by an
upcoming version of Android.

Although this change is currently a no-op due to the fact that the vDSO
is currently implemented in pure assembly on arm64, it is necessary
in order to prepare for another change [1] that will add C code to
the vDSO.
