Subject: Re: [PATCH] selftests: kvm: remove reassignment of non-absolute variables
Date: Thu, 10 Dec 2020 17:36:16 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CALMp9eTLwh0cSLv0f0U1A_wKP-T99yN9dLOrsUWTv4yokwiOHA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <CAGG=3QW4cQ958DfQBg18qxwGg7s6A6Uxjv=WfVQjWD4HW32LRA@mail.gmail.com>

666:
.pushsection .rodata
.quad 666b
