ARM: 7743/1: compressed/head.S: work around new binutils warning
In August 2012, Matthew Gretton-Dann checked a change into binutils labelled "Error on obsolete & warn on deprecated registers", apparently as part of ARMv8 support. Apparently, this was supposed to emit the message "Warning: This coprocessor register access is deprecated in ARMv8" when using certain mcr/mrc instructions and building for ARMv8. Unfortunately, the message that is actually emitted appears to be '(null)', which is less helpful in comparison. Even more unfortunately, this is biting us on every single kernel build with a new gas, because arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S and some other files in that directory are built with -march=all since kernel commit 80cec14a8 "[ARM] Add -march=all to assembly file build in arch/arm/boot/compressed" back in v2.6.28. This patch reverts Russell's nice solution and instead marks the head.S file to be built for armv7-a, which fortunately lets us build all instructions in that file without warnings even on the broken binutils. Without this patch, building anything results in: arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S: Assembler messages: arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:565: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:676: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:698: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:722: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:726: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:957: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:996: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:997: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1027: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1035: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1046: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1060: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1092: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1094: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1095: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1102: Warning: (null) arch/arm/boot/compressed/head.S:1134: Warning: (null) Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Cc: Matthew Gretton-Dann <matthew.gretton-dann@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
