SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 08/13] asm-generic: Refactor dereference_[kernel]_function_descriptor()

We should be moving more stuff out of extable.c (including all the
kernel address tests). lib/kimage.c or kelf.c or something.

It could be after your series though.

I know you're just copying existing code. This seems a bit risky though.
I don't think anything good could come of just treating the descriptor
address like a function entry address if we failed to load from it for
whatever reason.

Existing callers might be benign but the API is not good. It should
give a nice fail return or BUG. If we change that then we should also
change the name and pass the correct type to it too.

Thanks,
Nick
