[PATCH 1/2] ARC: define __ALIGN_STR and __ALIGN symbols for ARC

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


As of today ARC uses generic __ALIGN_STR and __ALIGN symbol
definitions from "include/linux/linkage.h"
They are defined to ".align 4,0x90" which instructed the assembler
to use `0x90` as a fill byte when aligning functions declared with
ENTRY or similar macroses. This leads to generated weird instructions
in code (when alignment is used) like "ldh_s r12,[r0,0x20]" which is
encoded as 0x9090 for ARCv2.

Let's use ".align 4" which insert a "nop_s" instruction instead.
