Subject[PATCH V6 06/49] x86/entry: Introduce __entry_text for entry code written in C
From: Lai Jiangshan <>

Some entry code will be implemented in C files. __entry_text is needed
to set them in .entry.text section. __entry_text disables instrumentation
like noinstr, but it doesn't disable stack protector since not all
compiler supported by kernel supporting function level granular
attribute to disable stack protector. It will be disabled by C file
