Subject[PATCH 16/29] x86: Move EXCEPTION_TABLE to RO_DATA segment
Date
The exception table was needlessly marked executable. In preparation
for execute-only memory, this moves the table into the RO_DATA segment
via a new macro that can be used by any architectures that want to make
a similar consolidation.
