Subject[PATCH v7 00/28] New macros for assembler symbols
Date
This series introduces new macros for assembly as was discussed [1]. The
rationale is that now we use several undocumented random macros
collected over time. There are even some defined for different
architectures differently. In many cases, developers do not know the
difference in semantics between two basic macros END and ENDPROC. But in
this very case, the difference is crucial especially for objtool when
generating e.g. debuginfo for assembly. For this reason, we define a set
of macros with documented meanings and hopefully intuitive names. These
macros greatly support automatic tools working on the generated code
from assembly or on the assembly proper.

The macros are introduced in the first patch of the series. The rest
of patches start using these new macros in x86, converting *all* uses
of the old macros to the new ones throughout the last patch. With
every last user of some old macro, the macro is immediately made
forbidden for x86.

When this settles down, conversion of other architectures can be done
too.

For introduction, documentation, use and examples, please see
Documentation/asm-annotations.rst from the first patch of the series.

Changes among v1..v7 of this series are documented per patch. v7 is
in fact only rebase on the current codebase as v6 was sent in May 2018
and received only a single comment which was answered without code
change.

Jiri Slaby (28):
linkage: new macros for assembler symbols
x86/asm/suspend: drop ENTRY from local data
x86/asm/suspend: use SYM_DATA for data
x86/asm: annotate relocate_kernel
x86/asm/entry: annotate THUNKs
x86/asm: annotate local pseudo-functions
x86/asm/crypto: annotate local functions
x86/boot/compressed: annotate local functions
x86/asm: annotate aliases
x86/asm/entry: annotate interrupt symbols properly
x86/asm/head: annotate data appropriatelly
x86/boot/compressed: annotate data appropriatelly
um: annotate data appropriatelly
xen/pvh: annotate data appropriatelly
x86/asm/purgatory: start using annotations
x86/asm: do not annotate functions by GLOBAL
x86/asm: use SYM_INNER_LABEL instead of GLOBAL
x86/asm/realmode: use SYM_DATA_* instead of GLOBAL
x86/asm: kill the last GLOBAL user and remove the macro
x86/asm: make some functions local
x86/asm/ftrace: mark function_hook as function
x86_64/asm: add ENDs to some functions and relabel with SYM_CODE_*
x86_64/asm: change all ENTRY+END to SYM_CODE_*
x86_64/asm: change all ENTRY+ENDPROC to SYM_FUNC_*
x86_32/asm: add ENDs to some functions and relabel with SYM_CODE_*
x86_32/asm: change all ENTRY+END to SYM_CODE_*
x86_32/asm: change all ENTRY+ENDPROC to SYM_FUNC_*
x86/asm: replace WEAK uses by SYM_INNER_LABEL_ALIGN
