2017-03-13module: set .init_array alignment to 8David Daney1-2/+1
The proper idiom for aligning linker sections in modules is different than for built-in sections. ". = ALIGN();" followed by a forced output address of 0 does nothing, as forcing the address changes the value of ".". Use output section alignment specifier instead.

2017-03-07Merge tag 'trace-v4.11-rc1' of ↵Linus Torvalds1-0/+2
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace Pull tracing fixes from Steven Rostedt: "There was some breakage with the changes for jump labels in the 4.11 merge window: - powerpc broke as jump labels uses the two LSB bits as flags in initialization. A check was added to make sure that all jump label entries were 4 bytes aligned, but powerpc didn't work that way for modules. Adding an alignment in the module linker script appeared to be the best solution. - Jump labels also added an anonymous union to access those LSB bits as a normal long. But because this structure had static initialization, it broke older compilers that could not statically initialize anonymous unions without brackets. - The command line parameter for setting function graph filter broke the "EMPTY_HASH" descriptor by modifying it instead of creating a new hash to hold the entries. - The command line parameter ftrace_graph_max_depth was added to allow its setting at boot time. It uses existing code and only the command line hook was added. This is not really a fix, but as it uses existing code without affecting anything else, I added it to this release. It was ready before the merge window closed, but I wanted to let it sit in linux-next for a couple of days first" * tag 'trace-v4.11-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace: ftrace/graph: Add ftrace_graph_max_depth kernel parameter tracing: Add #undef to fix compile error jump_label: Add comment about initialization order for anonymous unions jump_label: Fix anonymous union initialization module: set __jump_table alignment to 8 ftrace/graph: Do not modify the EMPTY_HASH for the function_graph filter tracing: Fix code comment for ftrace_ops_get_func()
2017-03-03module: set __jump_table alignment to 8David Daney1-0/+2
For powerpc the __jump_table section in modules is not aligned, this causes a WARN_ON() splat when loading a module containing a __jump_table. Strict alignment became necessary with commit 3821fd35b58d ("jump_label: Reduce the size of struct static_key"), currently in linux-next, which uses the two least significant bits of pointers to __jump_table elements. Fix by forcing __jump_table to 8, which is the same alignment used for this section in the kernel proper.

2017-03-01objtool, modules: Discard objtool annotation sections for modulesJosh Poimboeuf1-1/+4
The '__unreachable' and '__func_stack_frame_non_standard' sections are only used at compile time. They're discarded for vmlinux but they should also be discarded for modules. Since this is a recurring pattern, prefix the section names with ".discard.". It's a nice convention and vmlinux.lds.h already discards such sections. Also remove the 'a' (allocatable) flag from the __unreachable section since it doesn't make sense for a discarded section.

2015-02-13kernel: add support for .init_array.* constructorsAndrey Ryabinin1-0/+3
KASan uses constructors for initializing redzones for global variables. Globals instrumentation in GCC 4.9.2 produces constructors with priority (.init_array.00099) Currently kernel ignores such constructors. Only constructors with default priority supported (.init_array) This patch adds support for constructors with priorities. For kernel image we put pointers to constructors between __ctors_start/__ctors_end and do_ctors() will call them on start up. For modules we merge .init_array.* sections into resulting .init_array. Module code properly handles constructors in .init_array section.

2015-02-06module: set ksymtab/kcrctab* section addresses to 0x0Rabin Vincent1-10/+10
These __ksymtab*/__kcrctab* sections currently have non-zero addresses. Non-zero section addresses in a relocatable ELF confuse GDB and it ends up not relocating all symbols when add-symbol-file is used on modules which have exports. The kernel's module loader does not care about these addresses, so let's just set them to zero.

2011-05-19module: Sort exported symbolsAlessio Igor Bogani1-0/+11
This patch places every exported symbol in its own section (i.e. "___ksymtab+printk"). Thus the linker will use its SORT() directive to sort and finally merge all symbol in the right and final section (i.e. "__ksymtab"). The symbol prefixed archs use an underscore as prefix for symbols. To avoid collision we use a different character to create the temporary section names. This work was supported by a hardware donation from the CE Linux Forum.

x86 throws away .discard section but no other archs do. Also, .discard is not thrown away while linking modules. Make every arch and module linking throw it away.
