[PATCH v4 01/16] powerpc: Fix __WARN_FLAGS() for use with Objtool

From: Sathvika Vasireddy
Date: Sun Oct 02 2022 - 06:44:34 EST

Commit 1e688dd2a3d675 ("powerpc/bug: Provide better flexibility to
WARN_ON/__WARN_FLAGS() with asm goto") updated __WARN_FLAGS() to use asm
goto, and added a call to 'unreachable()' after the asm goto for optimal
code generation. With CONFIG_OBJTOOL enabled, 'annotate_unreachable()'
statement in 'unreachable()' tries to note down the location of the
subsequent instruction in a separate elf section to aid code flow
analysis. However, on powerpc, this results in gcc emitting a call to a
symbol of size 0. This results in objtool complaining of "unannotated
intra-function call" since the target symbol is not a valid function
call destination.

Objtool wants this annotation for code flow analysis, which we are not
yet enabling on powerpc. As such, expand the call to 'unreachable()' in
__WARN_FLAGS() without annotate_unreachable():

This still results in optimal code generation for __WARN_FLAGS(), while
getting rid of the objtool warning.

We still need barrier_before_unreachable() to work around gcc bugs 82365
and 106751:
