It's theoretically possible that there are exception table entries
which point into the (freed) init text of modules. These could cause
future problems if other modules get loaded into that memory and cause
an exception as we'd see the wrong fixup. The only case I know of is
kvm-intel.ko (when CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE=n).
Amerigo fixed this long-standing FIXME in the x86 version, but this
patch is more general.
This implements trim_init_extable(); most archs are simple since they
use the standard lib/extable.c sort code. Alpha and IA64 use relative
addresses in their fixups, so thier trimming is a slight variation.
Sparc32 is unique; it doesn't seem to define ARCH_HAS_SORT_EXTABLE,
yet it defines its own sort_extable() which overrides the one in lib.
It doesn't sort, so we have to mark deleted entries instead of
actually trimming them.

Actual code let compiler generates idiv instruction on x86.
Using a right shift is OK here and readable as well.

This patch removes all self references and fixes references to files
in the now defunct arch/ppc64 tree. I think this accomplises
everything wanted, though there might be a few references I missed.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
infrastructure for it.
Let it rip!
