SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 00/10] Independent per-CPU data section for nVHE

I've been playing around with this series this afternoon, trying to see
if we can reduce the coupling between the nVHE code and the core code. I've
ended up with the diff below on top of your series, but I think it actually
removes the need to change the core code at all. The idea is to collapse
the percpu sections during prelink, and then we can just deal with the
resulting data section a bit like we do for .hyp.text already.

Have I missed something critical?

Cheers,

Will
