ARM: 6504/1: Thumb-2: Fix long-distance conditional branches in head.S for Thumb-2.
The 32-bit conditional branches in Thumb-2 have a shorter range (+/-512K) than their ARM counterparts (+/-32MB). The linker does not currently generate trampolines to extend the range of these Thumb-2 conditional branches, resulting in link errors when vmlinux is sufficiently large, e.g.: head.o:(.text+0x464): relocation truncated to fit: R_ARM_THM_JUMP19 This patch forces the longer-range, unconditional branch encoding by use of an explicit IT instruction. The resulting branches are triggered on the same conditions as before. Signed-off-by: Dave Martin <dave.martin@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
