Subject: [PATCH 0/2] powerpc: fortify support

This series provides arch-specific support for Daniel Micay's
fortified string functions on powerpc.

Fortified string functions provied some compile and run time bounds
checking on commonly used string functions.

It's cool - currently it picks up a lot of random things so it will
require some more work across the tree, but hopefully it will
eventually hit mainline. These patches make powerpc ready for when it

They've been tested on pseries.

I think patch 1 should probably go through Kees to line up with the
fortify patch itself, but patch 2 can apply to powerpc as is. But up
to you, mpe.


Daniel Axtens (2):
  powerpc: Don't fortify prom_init
  powerpc: Make feature-fixup tests fortify-safe
