module: fix module loading failure of large kernel modules for parisc
Helge Deller [Wed, 31 Dec 2008 11:31:18 +0000 (12:31 +0100)]
When creating the final layout of a kernel module in memory, allow the
module loader to reserve some additional memory in front of a given section.
This is currently only needed for the parisc port which needs to put the
stub entries there to fulfill the 17/22bit PCREL relocations with large
kernel modules like xfs.
