Subject: [PATCH 3.8 112/116] recordmcount/MIPS: Fix possible incorrect mcount_loc table entries in modules

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

------------------

From: Alex Smith <alex.smith@...tec.com>

commit 91ad11d7cc6f4472ebf177a6252fbf0fd100d798 upstream.

On MIPS calls to _mcount in modules generate 2 instructions to load
the _mcount address (and therefore 2 relocations). The mcount_loc
table should only reference the first of these, so the second is
filtered out by checking the relocation offset and ignoring ones that
immediately follow the previous one seen.

However if a module has an _mcount call at offset 0, the second
relocation would not be filtered out due to old_r_offset == 0
being taken to mean that the current relocation is the first one
seen, and both would end up in the mcount_loc table.

This results in ftrace_make_nop() patching both (adjacent)
instructions to branches over the _mcount call sequence like so:

  0xffffffffc08a8000:  04 00 00 10     b       0xffffffffc08a8014
  0xffffffffc08a8004:  04 00 00 10     b       0xffffffffc08a8018
  0xffffffffc08a8008:  2d 08 e0 03     move    at,ra
  ...

The second branch is in the delay slot of the first, which is
defined to be unpredictable - on the platform on which this bug was
encountered, it triggers a reserved instruction exception.

Fix by initializing old_r_offset to ~0 and using that instead of 0
to determine whether the current relocation is the first seen.
