I was hoping to get these posted earlier, but they had a dependency
on the kbuild tree which took a while to merge. Hopefully we can get
at least the first 4 patches in, which are just sanity checks on the
final binary.

With this series applied, I'm able to build[*] and boot a 64-bit
book3s allyesconfig kernel, a 200MB vmlinux (although today's tree
breaks in some random driver initcall in late boot). That's largely
a culmination of Stephen Rothwell's work (including the kbuild changes
that were merged earlier in 4.9), I just picked up some of his patches
so attributions may not be 100% reflective of reality.

[*] Building allyesconfig still requires KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS=1, which
    I'm yet to look into.


Nicholas Piggin (7):
  powerpc: use the new post-link pass to check relocations
  powerpc: add arch/powerpc/tools directory
  powerpc/64s: tool to flag direct branches from unrelocated interrupt
  powerpc/64: tool to check head sections location sanity
  powerpc/64: handle linker stubs in low .text code
  powerpc: switch to using thin archives if COMPILE_TEST is set
