parisc: Merge ftrace C-helper and assembler functions into section
When enabling all-branch ftrace support (CONFIG_PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES) the kernel gets really huge and some ftrace assembler functions like mcount can't reach the ftrace helper functions which are written in C. Avoid this problem of too distant branches by moving the ftrace C-helper functions into the section which is put in front of the standard .text section by the linker. Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <>
