What is a 'kretporbe'?

What does 'marks it is' mean?

'undefine' UNWIND_HINT_FUNC?

Doesn't the patch do the exact opposite:

> +#define UNWIND_HINT_FUNC \
> + UNWIND_HINT(ORC_REG_SP, 8, UNWIND_HINT_TYPE_FUNC, 0)

But it does undefine it in a specific spot:

I have to say these changelogs are very careless.

In headers, in longer CPP blocks, please always mark the '#else' branch
with what it is the else branch of.

See the output of:

kepler:~/tip> git grep '#else' arch/x86/include/asm/ | head

s/doesn't seems to have a standard stack frame
/doesn't have a standard stack frame

There's nothing 'seems' about the situation - it's a non-standard function
entry and stack frame situation, and the unwinder needs to know about it.

Why not provide an appropriate annotation method in <asm/unwind_hints.h>,
so that other future code can use it too instead of reinventing the wheel?

Thanks,

Ingo
