Subject[PATCH v1 13/13] powerpc/kconfig: make _etext and data areas alignment configurable on Book3s 32
Date
Depending on the number of available BATs for mapping the different
kernel areas, it might be needed to increase the alignment of _etext
and/or of data areas.

This patchs allows the user to do it via Kconfig.
