Subject: [GIT PULL] parisc architecture updates for kernel v5.9

Hi Linus,

please pull another set of patches for the parisc architecture for kernel 5.9-rc1 from:

  git:// parisc-5.9-2

This patchset includes:
- Oscar Carter contributed a patch which fixes parisc's usage of
  dereference_function_descriptor() and thus will allow using the
  -Wcast-function-type compiler option in the top-level Makefile
- Sven Schnelle fixed a bug in the SBA code to prevent crashes during kexec
- John David Anglin provided implementations for __smp_store_release() and
  __smp_load_acquire barriers() which avoids using the sync assembler
  instruction and thus speeds up barrier paths
- Some whitespace cleanups in parisc's atomic.h header file


Helge Deller (2):
      sections.h: dereference_function_descriptor() returns void pointer
      parisc: Whitespace cleanups in atomic.h

John David Anglin (1):
      parisc: Implement __smp_store_release and __smp_load_acquire barriers

Oscar Carter (1):
      parisc/kernel/ftrace: Remove function callback casts

Sven Schnelle (1):
      parisc: mask out enable and reserved bits from sba imask
