Merge branch 'core-urgent-for-linus' of git://

Pull core fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
 "A small set of core updates:

   - Make objtool cope with GCC8 oddities some more

   - Remove a stale local_irq_save/restore sequence in the signal code
     along with the stale comment in the RCU code. The underlying issue
     which led to this has been solved long time ago, but nobody cared
     to cleanup the hackarounds"

* 'core-urgent-for-linus' of git://
  signal: Remove no longer required irqsave/restore
  rcu: Update documentation of rcu_read_unlock()
  objtool: Fix GCC 8 cold subfunction detection for aliased functions
