[PATCH 2/2] ARC: don't align ret_from_exception function

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


ARC have a tricky implemented ret_from_exception function.
It is written on ASM and can be called like regular function.
However it has another 'entry point' as it can be called as a
continuation of EV_Trap function.

As we declare "ret_from_exception" using ENTRY macro it may align
"ret_from_exception" by 4 bytes by adding padding before it.
"ret_from_exception" doesn't require alignment by 4 bytes
(as it doesn't go to vector table, etc...) so let's avoid aligning
it by switch from ENTRY (which is alias for SYM_FUNC_START) to
