ooh, there is really a bug in scripts/recordmcount.pl, just fixed it.

warnings like this(only in mips/64bit):

 CC      fs/proc/devices.o
mipsel-linux-gnu-objcopy: 'fs/proc/.tmp_gl_devices.o': No such file
mipsel-linux-gnu-ld: fs/proc/.tmp_gl_devices.o: No such file: No such
file or directory
rm: cannot remove `fs/proc/.tmp_gl_devices.o': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `fs/proc/.tmp_mx_devices.o': No such file or directory

so i checked the source code and let it print something:

     #
     # Step 5: set up each local function as a global
     #
+    print "$objcopy $globallist $inputfile $globalobj\n";
     `$objcopy $globallist $inputfile $globalobj`;

something like this is printed:

mipsel-linux-gnu-objcopy  --globalize-symbol $L12
arch/mips/kernel/irq_cpu.o arch/mips/kernel/.tmp_gl_irq_cpu.o
mipsel-linux-gnu-objcopy: 'arch/mips/kernel/.tmp_gl_irq_cpu.o': No such
file
mipsel-linux-gnu-ld: arch/mips/kernel/.tmp_gl_irq_cpu.o: No such file:
No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `arch/mips/kernel/.tmp_gl_irq_cpu.o': No such file or
directory
rm: cannot remove `arch/mips/kernel/.tmp_mx_irq_cpu.o': No such file or
directory


did you see the symbol: $L12, which should be quoted, otherwise, it will
be interpreted as the value of a variable L12(the whole $L12 should be a
string), this $L12 will be an empty string. so, the whole command
becomes:

mipsel-linux-gnu-objcopy --globalize-symbol arch/mips/kernel/irq_cpu.o
arch/mips/kernel/.tmp_gl_irq_cpu.o

the last string .../.tmp_gl_irq_cpu.o becomes the input file, but it's
not there, that is the warning.

fix it like this:

diff --git a/scripts/recordmcount.pl b/scripts/recordmcount.pl
index 59ea43a..907110e 100755
--- a/scripts/recordmcount.pl
+++ b/scripts/recordmcount.pl
@@ -451,8 +451,8 @@ if ($#converts >= 0) {
     my $locallist = "";
 
     foreach my $con (@converts) {
-       $globallist .= " --globalize-symbol $con";
-       $locallist .= " --localize-symbol $con";
+       $globallist .= " --globalize-symbol \"$con\"";
+       $locallist .= " --localize-symbol \"$con\"";
     }
 
     my $globalobj = $dirname . "/.tmp_gl_" . $filename;

I will add this as the third patch, is it okay?
