      objtool, compiler.h: Fix __unreachable section relocation size · 55149d06
      Josh Poimboeuf authored
      Linus reported the following commit broke module loading on his laptop:
       ("objtool: Improve detection of BUG() and other dead ends")
      It showed errors like the following:
        module: overflow in relocation type 10 val ffffffffc02afc81
        module: 'nvme' likely not compiled with -mcmodel=kernel
      The problem is that the __unreachable section addresses are stored using
      the '.long' asm directive, which isn't big enough for .text section
      kernel addresses.  Use relative addresses instead:
        ".long %c0b - .\t\n"

      Pull IPMI updates from Corey Minyard:
       "This is a few small fixes to the main IPMI driver, make some things
        const, fix typos, etc.
        The last patch came in about a week ago, but IMHO it's best to go in
        now. It is not for the main driver, it's for the bt-bmc driver, which
        runs on the managment controller side, not on the host side, so the
        scope is limited and the change is necessary"

      Pull IDR rewrite from Matthew Wilcox:
       "The most significant part of the following is the patch to rewrite the
        IDR & IDA to be clients of the radix tree. But there's much more,
        including an enhancement of the IDA to be significantly more space
        efficient, an IDR & IDA test suite, some improvements to the IDR API
        (and driver changes to take advantage of those improvements), several
        improvements to the radix tree test suite and RCU annotations.
        The IDR & IDA rewrite had a good spin in linux-next and Andrew's tree
        for most of the last cycle. Coupled with the IDR test suite, I feel
        pretty confident that any remaining bugs are quite hard to hit. 0-day
        did a great job of watching my git tree and pointing out problems; as
        it hit them, I added new test-cases to be sure not to be caught the
        same way twice"
      Willy goes on to expand a bit on the IDR rewrite rationale:
       "The radix tree and the IDR use very similar data structures.
        Merging the two codebases lets us share the memory allocation pools,
        and results in a net deletion of 500 lines of code. It also opens up
        the possibility of exposing more of the features of the radix tree to
        users of the IDR (and I have some interesting patches along those
        lines waiting for 4.12)
        It also shrinks the size of the 'struct idr' from 40 bytes to 24 which
        will shrink a fair few data structures that embed an IDR"
