Merge branch 'x86-asm-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip

Pull x86 asm updates from Ingo Molnar:
 "Two changes:

   - Remove (some) remnants of the vDSO's fake section table mechanism
     that were left behind when the vDSO build process reverted to using
     "objdump -S" to strip the userspace image.

   - Remove hardcoded POPCNT mnemonics now that the minimum binutils
     version supports the symbolic form"

* 'x86-asm-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip:
  x86/vdso: Remove a stale/misleading comment from the linker script
  x86/vdso: Remove obsolete "fake section table" reservation
  x86: Use POPCNT mnemonics in arch_hweight.h
