[PATCH] ARM: fix kmemleak for XIP_KERNEL

From: Arnd Bergmann
Date: Tue Nov 22 2016 - 09:29:18 EST

The newly added check for RO_AFTER_INIT_DATA in kmemleak breaks ARM whenever
XIP_KERNEL is enabled:

mm/kmemleak.o: In function `kmemleak_scan':
kmemleak.c:(.text.kmemleak_scan+0x2e4): undefined reference to `__end_data_ro_after_init'
kmemleak.c:(.text.kmemleak_scan+0x2e8): undefined reference to `__start_data_ro_after_init'

This adds the start/end symbols for the section even in the case of having
no data in the section, to make the check work while keeping the architecture
specific override in one place.

Fixes: d7c19b066dcf ("mm: kmemleak: scan .data.ro_after_init")
Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>
The patch causing this was merged late into v4.9-rc, this one should
probably go there as well.

I assume the same problem exists on s390, but I have not checked that.
