Subject[PATCH 3.18 14/25] scripts: recordmcount: break hardlinks
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

commit dd39a26538e37f6c6131e829a4a510787e43c783 upstream.

recordmcount edits the file in-place, which can cause problems when
using ccache in hardlink mode. Arrange for recordmcount to break a
hardlinked object.
