Subject: [PATCH 3.13 056/149] powerpc: Align p_dyn, p_rela and p_st symbols

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Anton Blanchard <>

commit a5b2cf5b1af424ee3dd9e3ce6d5cea18cb927e67 upstream.

The 64bit relocation code places a few symbols in the text segment.
These symbols are only 4 byte aligned where they need to be 8 byte
aligned. Add an explicit alignment.
