Subject: [PATCH 4.14 162/183] x86/unwind/orc: Fix ORC unwind table alignment

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

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

From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@...hat.com>

commit f76a16adc485699f95bb71fce114f97c832fe664 upstream.

The .orc_unwind section is a packed array of 6-byte structs.  It's
currently aligned to 6 bytes, which is causing warnings in the LLD
linker.

Six isn't a power of two, so it's not a valid alignment value.  The
actual alignment doesn't matter much because it's an array of packed
structs.  An alignment of two is sufficient.  In reality it always gets
aligned to four bytes because it comes immediately after the
4-byte-aligned .orc_unwind_ip section.

Fixes: ee9f8fce9964 ("x86/unwind: Add the ORC unwinder")
