Subject[RFC PATCH v1.9 04/14] x86: move _stext marker before head code
Date
When core_kernel_text() is used to determine whether an address on a
task's stack trace is a kernel text address, it incorrectly returns
false for early text addresses for the head code between the _text and
_stext markers.

Head code is text code too, so mark it as such. This seems to match the
intent of other users of the _stext symbol, and it also seems consistent
with what other architectures are already doing.
