Subject: Re: [PATCH v7 2/2] ARM hibernation / suspend-to-disk

Sorry to those receiving repeated emails, I'm having an issue with some
of the special characters names.

Hi Stephen,

I was wondering if you had any objections or additional comments on
the current patch.

I've basically dropped the RELOC_HIDE.  It hasn't proven to be an issue
with the current compiler, and I was unable to revert back to 3.x
compiler on the cortex-v7 platforms I'm using.

Since this is being used on Hibernation, we would not be breaking any
existing functionality in any event, and it sounds like this is unlikely
to be an issue.

I spoke informally to a friend who works on toolchains at Linaro and
he suggested this may be related to the the strict-aliasing feature
which appears to be disabled by default in the kernel
(-fno-strict-aliasing) and generally not well liked.

Unless someone objects, I'll plan to add this to Russell's patch system.

Thanks,

Sebastian
