Subject: [PATCH v7 08/10] x86: extable: use macros instead of inline assembly
Date: Thu, 9 Aug 2018 13:15:51 -0700
Message-ID: <20180809201554.168804-9-namit@vmware.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180809201554.168804-1-namit@vmware.com>

Use assembly macros for exception-tables and call them from inline
assembly.  This not only makes the code more readable and allows to
avoid the duplicate implementation, but also improves compilation
decision, specifically inline decisions which GCC base on the number of
new lines in inline assembly.

   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
18162555 10226288 2957312 31346155 1de4deb ./vmlinux before
18162879 10226256 2957312 31346447 1de4f0f ./vmlinux after (+292)

This allows to inline functions such as nested_vmx_exit_reflected(),
set_segment_reg(), __copy_xstate_to_user().
