2012-03-24ARM: 7333/2: jump label: detect %c support for ARMRabin Vincent
Some versions of ARM GCC which do support asm goto, do not support the %c specifier. Since we need the %c to support jump labels on ARM, detect that too in the asm goto detection script to avoid build errors with these versions. http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=48637 Acked-by: Jason Baron <jbaron@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Rabin Vincent <rabin@rab.in> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

2010-09-24jump label: Fix GCC feature check when distcc is usedIngo Molnar
The following build bug occurs on distcc builds: CC arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s In file included from include/linux/module.h:24, from include/linux/crypto.h:22, from arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets_64.c:9, from arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.c:5: include/trace/events/module.h: In function 'trace_module_load': include/trace/events/module.h:18: error: expected '(' before 'goto' include/trace/events/module.h:18: error: expected identifier or '*' before '(' token It triggers because distcc is invoked by turning $CC into "distcc gcc", but gcc-goto.sh check script was using $1 not $@ to expand parameters.

2010-09-22jump label: Base patch for jump labelJason Baron
base patch to implement 'jump labeling'. Based on a new 'asm goto' inline assembly gcc mechanism, we can now branch to labels from an 'asm goto' statment. This allows us to create a 'no-op' fastpath, which can subsequently be patched with a jump to the slowpath code. This is useful for code which might be rarely used, but which we'd like to be able to call, if needed. Tracepoints are the current usecase that these are being implemented for. Acked-by: David S.
