Sandipan Das May 14, 2018, 11:51 a.m.
The imm field of a bpf instruction is a signed 32-bit integer.
For JIT bpf-to-bpf function calls, it stores the offset of the
start address of the callee's JITed image from __bpf_call_base.

For some architectures, such as powerpc64, this offset may be
as large as 64 bits and cannot be accomodated in the imm field
without truncation.

We resolve this by:

[1] Additionally using the auxillary data of each function to
    keep a list of start addresses of the JITed images for all
    functions determined by the verifier.

[2] Retaining the subprog id inside the off field of the call
    instructions and using it to index into the list mentioned
    above and lookup the callee's address.

To make sure that the existing JIT compilers continue to work
without requiring changes, we keep the imm field as it is.

v3: Rephrase commit message to explain solution in a point-
    wise manner.

v2: Make aux->func point to the list of functions determined
    by the verifier rather than allocating a separate callee
    list for each function.
