Merge branch 'core-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull objtool fix from Thomas Gleixner: "A single fix for objtool to address a bug in handling the cold subfunction detection for aliased functions which was added recently. The bug causes objtool to enter an infinite loop" * 'core-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: objtool: Support GCC 8 '-fnoreorder-functions'
