Subject: [PATCH 0/3] gcc-plugins/stackleak: Ignore .noinstr.text and .entry.text

Out of an abundance of caution, do not perform stack depth analysis on
.noinstr.text and .entry.text section functions, as it may be possible
that "current" is not sane.

Additionally, to verify results, the verbose mode is wired up the Kconfig,
and the string matching is refactored for correctness.


Kees Cook (3):
  gcc-plugins/stackleak: Provide verbose mode
  gcc-plugins/stackleak: Exactly match strings instead of prefixes
  gcc-plugins/stackleak: Ignore .noinstr.text and .entry.text
