Subject: Re: [PATCH] x86: livepatch: Treat R_X86_64_PLT32 as R_X86_64_PC32

Hiļ¼ŒJiri


This patch should be merged into 4.4 stable,

which still use klp_write_module_reloc.


https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.4.174/source/arch/x86/kernel/livepatch.c


ZeFeng may have sent a stable(4.4-y) patch to the wrong mail-list(mainline).


Thanks.
