/*
 * Usage guidelines:
 * _text, _data: architecture specific, don't use them in arch-independent code
 * [_stext, _etext]: contains .text.* sections, may also contain .rodata.*
 *                   and/or .init.* sections
 * [_sdata, _edata]: contains .data.* sections, may also contain .rodata.*
 *                   and/or .init.* sections.
 * [__start_rodata, __end_rodata]: contains .rodata.* sections
 * [__init_begin, __init_end]: contains .init.* sections, but .init.text.*
 *                   may be out of this range on some architectures.
 * [_sinittext, _einittext]: contains .init.text.* sections
 * [__bss_start, __bss_stop]: contains BSS sections
 *
 * Following global variables are optional and may be unavailable on some
 * architectures and/or kernel configurations.
 *	_text, _data
 *	__kprobes_text_start, __kprobes_text_end
 *	__entry_text_start, __entry_text_end
 *	__ctors_start, __ctors_end
