Subject: [PATCH] arm64: alternatives: Move length validation in alternative_{insn,endif}
Date: Tue, 13 Apr 2021 17:08:04 -0700
Message-ID: <20210414000803.662534-1-nathan@kernel.org> (raw)

After commit 2decad92f473 ("arm64: mte: Ensure TIF_MTE_ASYNC_FAULT is
set atomically"), LLVM's integrated assembler fails to build entry.S:

<instantiation>:5:7: error: expected assembly-time absolute expression
 .org . - (664b-663b) + (662b-661b)
      ^
<instantiation>:6:7: error: expected assembly-time absolute expression
 .org . - (662b-661b) + (664b-663b)
      ^

The root cause is LLVM's assembler has a one-pass design, meaning it
cannot figure out these instruction lengths when the .org directive is
outside of the subsection that they are in, which was changed by the
.arch_extension directive added in the above commit.

Apply the same fix from commit 966a0acce2fc ("arm64/alternatives: move
length validation inside the subsection") to the alternative_endif
macro, shuffling the .org directives so that the length validation
happen will always happen in the same subsections. alternative_insn has
not shown any issue yet but it appears that it could have the same issue
in the future so just preemptively change it.

Apologies if my explanation or terminology is off, I am only now getting
more familiar with assembly.
