Subject[patch 01/38] x86/paravirt: Ensure proper alignment
Date
The entries in the .parainstr sections are 8 byte aligned and the
corresponding C struct makes the array offset 16 bytes.

Though the pushed entries are only using 12 bytes. .parainstr_end is
therefore 4 bytes short.

That works by chance because it's only used in a loop:

for (p = start; p < end; p++)

But this falls flat when calculating the number of elements:

n = end - start

That's obviously off by one.

Ensure that the gap is filled and the last entry is occupying 16 bytes.
