Subject[PATCH 2/4] arm64: vdso32: Detect binutils support for dmb ishld
Date
As reported by Will Deacon, older versions of binutils that do not
support certain types of memory barriers can cause build failure of the
vdso32 library.

Add a compilation time mechanism that detects if binutils supports those
instructions and configure the kernel accordingly.
