lib: crc32: constify crc32 lookup table
Commit 8f243af42ade ("sections: fix const sections for crc32 table") removed the compile-time generated crc32 tables from the RO sections, because it conflicts with the definition of __cacheline_aligned which puts all such aligned data into .data..cacheline_aligned section optimized for wasting less space, and can cause alignment issues when used in combination with const with some gcc versions like 4.7.0 due to a gcc bug [1]. Given that most gcc versions should have the fix by now, we can just use ____cacheline_aligned, which only aligns the data but doesn't move it into specific sections as opposed to __cacheline_aligned. In case of gcc versions having the mentioned bug, the alignment attribute will have no effect, but the data will still be made RO. After patch tables are in RO: $ nm -v lib/crc32.o | grep -1 -E "crc32c?table" 0000000000000000 t arch_local_irq_enable 0000000000000000 r crc32ctable_le 0000000000000000 t crc32_exit -- 0000000000000960 t test_buf 0000000000002000 r crc32table_be 0000000000004000 r crc32table_le 000000001d1056e5 A __crc_crc32_be [1] https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52181 Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@redhat.com> Cc: Joe Mario <jmario@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
