Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 00/10] Independent per-CPU data section for nVHE

Seems to work. Can't use PERCPU_SECTION directly because then we couldn't
rename it in the same linker script, but if we just unwrap that one layer
we can use PERCPU_INPUT. No global macro changes needed.

Let me know what you think.
