SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 00/13] Fix LKDTM for PPC64/IA64/PARISC

Just to nitpick, it's powerpc 64-bit using the ELFv1 ABI. [1]

The ELFv2 ABI [2] doesn't use function descriptors. (ELFv2 is used
primarily for ppc64le, but some people like musl support it for BE as
well.)

This doesn't affect the correctness or desirability of your changes, it
was just bugging me when I was reading the commit messages :-)

Kind regards,
Daniel
