ARM: 8179/1: kprobes-test: Fix compile error "bad immediate value for offset"
When compiling kprobes-test-arm.c the following error has been observed /tmp/ccoT403o.s:21439: Error: bad immediate value for offset (4168) This is caused by the compiler spilling it's literal pool too far away from the site which is trying to reference it with a PC relative load. This arises because the compiler is underestimating the size of the inline assembler code present, which apparently it approximates as 4 bytes per line or instruction. We fix this problem by moving the operations which generate more than 4 bytes out of the text section. Specifically, moving the .ascii directives to the .rodata section.
