Subject: [PATCH] frv: Declare jiffies to be located in the .data section
Date: Tue, 16 May 2017 15:13:33 -0700
Message-ID: <20170516221333.177280-1-mka@chromium.org> (raw)

Commit 7c30f352c852 ("jiffies.h: declare jiffies and jiffies_64 with
____cacheline_aligned_in_smp") removed a section specification from the
jiffies declaration that caused conflicts on some platforms. Unfortunately
this change broke the build for frv:

kernel/built-in.o: In function `__do_softirq':
(.text+0x6460): relocation truncated to fit: R_FRV_GPREL12 against symbol
    `jiffies' defined in *ABS* section in .tmp_vmlinux1
kernel/built-in.o: In function `__do_softirq':
(.text+0x6574): relocation truncated to fit: R_FRV_GPREL12 against symbol
    `jiffies' defined in *ABS* section in .tmp_vmlinux1
kernel/built-in.o: In function `pwq_activate_delayed_work':
workqueue.c:(.text+0x15b9c): relocation truncated to fit: R_FRV_GPREL12 against
    symbol `jiffies' defined in *ABS* section in .tmp_vmlinux1
...

Add __jiffy_arch_data to the declaration of jiffies and use it on frv to
include the section specification. For all other platforms __jiffy_arch_data
(currently) has no effect.

Fixes: 7c30f352c852 ("jiffies.h: declare jiffies and jiffies_64 with
____cacheline_aligned_in_smp")
