Subject[PATCH 4.14 093/109] powerpc/modules: Dont try to restore r2 after a sibling call
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@redhat.com>


[ Upstream commit b9eab08d012fa093947b230f9a87257c27fb829b ]

When attempting to load a livepatch module, I got the following error:

module_64: patch_module: Expect noop after relocate, got 3c820000

The error was triggered by the following code in
unregister_netdevice_queue():

14c: 00 00 00 48 b 14c <unregister_netdevice_queue+0x14c>
14c: R_PPC64_REL24 net_set_todo
150: 00 00 82 3c addis r4,r2,0

GCC didn't insert a nop after the branch to net_set_todo() because it's
a sibling call, so it never returns. The nop isn't needed after the
branch in that case.
