See attached for mips. It seems to do the right thing.

I leave it as an exercise to the reader to fix the other architectures.

Consult your own binutils experts to verify that what I say is true.

Subject: [PATCH] MIPS: jump_lable: Give __jump_table elements an entsize.

Since the __jump_table is a big array of non power-of-2 sized
elements, tell the linker the size so they can be properly packed.
Since each element will have unique "code" and "key" fields, no
merging will ever occur, but it should end up properly packed.
