It might be better to just make the rule be that we don't have relocations there - make everything relative to the start of the code segment or something. On x86, we already use that _ASM_EXTABLE() macro to hide the differences between x86-64 and x86-32. So it should be be somewhat easy to make that same macro make it relative to the code start, and at the same time also make the exception table perhaps be two 32-bit words rather than two pointers. So it would shrink the exception table and avoid relocations at the same time. Win-win. No? Linus
