kexec_file: make use of purgatory optional
Patch series "kexec_file, x86, powerpc: refactoring for other architecutres", v2. This is a preparatory patchset for adding kexec_file support on arm64. It was originally included in a arm64 patch set[1], but Philipp is also working on their kexec_file support on s390[2] and some changes are now conflicting. So these common parts were extracted and put into a separate patch set for better integration. What's more, my original patch#4 was split into a few small chunks for easier review after Dave's comment. As such, the resulting code is basically identical with my original, and the only *visible* differences are: - renaming of _kexec_kernel_image_probe() and _kimage_file_post_load_cleanup() - change one of types of arguments at prepare_elf64_headers() Those, unfortunately, require a couple of trivial changes on the rest (#1, #6 to #13) of my arm64 kexec_file patch set[1]. Patch #1 allows making a use of purgatory optional, particularly useful for arm64. Patch #2 commonalizes arch_kexec_kernel_{image_probe, image_load, verify_sig}() and arch_kimage_file_post_load_cleanup() across architectures. Patches #3-#7 are also intended to generalize parse_elf64_headers(), along with exclude_mem_range(), to be made best re-use of.

It is highly unlikely that the region is accidentally corrupted and this observation rationalizes that digest check code can also be dropped from purgatory. The resulting code is so simple as it doesn't require a bit ugly re-linking/relocation stuff, i.e. arch_kexec_apply_relocations_add(). Please see: http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-arm-kernel/2017-December/545428.html All that the purgatory does is to shuffle arguments and jump into a new kernel, while we still need to have some space for a hash value (purgatory_sha256_digest) which is never checked against. As such, it doesn't make sense to have trampline code between old kernel and new kernel on arm64. This patch introduces a new configuration, ARCH_HAS_KEXEC_PURGATORY, and allows related code to be compiled in only if necessary.
