Subject[PATCH 05/18] arm64: kbuild: reserve reg x18 from general allocation by the compiler
From
From: Ard Biesheuvel <ard.biesheuvel@linaro.org>

Before we can start using register x18 for a special purpose (as permitted
by the AAPCS64 ABI), we need to tell the compiler that it is off limits
for general allocation. So tag it as 'fixed', and remove the mention from
the LL/SC compiler flag override.
