Subject[PATCH 00/29] vmlinux.lds.h: Refactor EXCEPTION_TABLE and NOTES
Date
This series works to move the linker sections for NOTES and
EXCEPTION_TABLE into the RO_DATA area, where they belong on most
(all?) architectures. The problem being addressed was the discovery
by Rick Edgecombe that the exception table was accidentally marked
executable while he was developing his execute-only-memory series. When
permissions were flipped from readable-and-executable to only-executable,
the exception table became unreadable, causing things to explode rather
badly. :)

Roughly speaking, the steps are:

- regularize the linker names for PT_NOTE and PT_LOAD program headers
(to "note" and "text" respectively)
- regularize restoration of linker section to program header assignment
(when PT_NOTE exists)
- move NOTES into RO_DATA
- finish macro naming conversions for RO_DATA and RW_DATA
- move EXCEPTION_TABLE into RO_DATA on architectures where this is clear
- clean up some x86-specific reporting of kernel memory resources
- switch x86 linker fill byte from x90 (NOP) to 0xcc (INT3), just because
I finally realized what that trailing ": 0x9090" meant -- and we should
trap, not slide, if execution lands in section padding

Since these changes are treewide, I'd love to get architecture-maintainer
Acks and either have this live in x86 -tip or in my own tree, however
people think it should go.

Thanks!
