[PATCH 40/46] x86/livepatch, lto: Disable live patching with gcc LTO

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


From: Andi Kleen <andi@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

It is not supported by gcc 12 so far, so it causes compiler "sorry"

Other than the compiler support, there shouldn't be any barriers for
live patching LTOed kernels, although it might be more difficult to
create patches for larger functions.

 	  Say Y here if you want to support kernel live patching.
 	  This option has no runtime impact until a kernel "patch"
