[PATCH 2/2] x86_64 vDSO: put vars in .rodata

From: Roland McGrath
Date: Mon Sep 24 2007 - 07:05:53 EST

This adds a const to the definitions vvar.c makes, so that the vdso_*
variables go into .rodata instead of .data. This is essentially a cosmetic
change, just giving the section headers in the vDSO file more pleasing flags.
These variables are read-only from the perspective of the vDSO itself and
user mode, even though the contents of the DSO image were adjusted at boot.
