Subject: [PATCH v7 0/2] hibernation support on ARM

Patches adding support for hibernation on ARM
 - ARM hibernation / suspend-to-disk
 - Change soft_restart to use non-tracing raw_local_irq_disable

Patches based on v3.14-rc5 tag, verified hibernation on beaglebone black on a
branch based on 3.13 merged with initial omap support from Russ Dill which
can be found here (includes v1 patchset): hibernation_3.13_russMerge

[PATCH v7 1/2] ARM: avoid tracers in soft_restart
 arch/arm/kernel/process.c |    2 +-
 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-)

 Use raw_local_irq_disable in place of local_irq_disable to avoid
 infinite abort recursion while tracing. (unchanged since v3)

 Adds support for ARM based hibernation

Additional notes:

There are two checkpatch warnings added by this patch.  These follow
behavior in existing hibernation implementations on other platforms.

    WARNING: externs should be avoided in .c files
    #120: FILE: arch/arm/kernel/hibernate.c:24:
    +extern const void __nosave_begin, __nosave_end;

  This extern is picking up the linker nosave region definitions, only
  used in hibernate.  Follows same extern line used mips, powerpc, s390,
  sh, sparc, x86 & unicore32

    WARNING: externs should be avoided in .c files
    #200: FILE: arch/arm/kernel/hibernate.c:104:
    +	extern void call_with_stack(void (*fn)(void *), void *arg, void *sp);

  This extern is used in the arch/arm/ in hibernate, process and bL_switcher

Changes in v7:
* remove use of RELOC_HIDE macro
* remove unused #includes
* fixup comment for arch_restore_image
* ensure alignment of resume stack on 8 byte boundary

Changes in v6:
* Simplify static variable names

Changes in v5:
* Fixed checkpatch warning on trailing whitespace

Changes in v4:
* updated comment for soft_restart with review feedback
* dropped freeze_processes patch which was queued separately 
  to 3.14 by Rafael Wysocki:

Changes in v3:
* added comment to use of soft_restart
* drop irq disable soft_restart patch
* add patch to avoid tracers in soft_restart by using raw_local_irq_*

Changes in v2:
* Removed unneeded flush_thread, use of __naked and cpu_init.
* dropped Cyril Chemparathy <> from Cc: list as 
  emails are bouncing.
