Subject[PATCH 4.9 47/70] gcov: add support for GCC 10.1
Date
From: Peter Oberparleiter <oberpar@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 40249c6962075c040fd071339acae524f18bfac9 ]

Using gcov to collect coverage data for kernels compiled with GCC 10.1
causes random malfunctions and kernel crashes. This is the result of a
changed GCOV_COUNTERS value in GCC 10.1 that causes a mismatch between
the layout of the gcov_info structure created by GCC profiling code and
the related structure used by the kernel.

Fix this by updating the in-kernel GCOV_COUNTERS value. Also re-enable
config GCOV_KERNEL for use with GCC 10.
