arm: mark save_boot_params_ret as a function
As no '.type' was set for save_boot_params_ret in start.S, binutils did not track whether it was emitted as A32 or T32. By properly marking save_boot_params_ret as a potential function entry, we can make sure that the compiler will insert the appropriate instructions for branching to save_boot_params_ret both for call-sites emitted as A32 and T32. Reported-by: Andy Yan <> Signed-off-by: Philipp Tomsich <> Tested-by: Andy Yan <> Series-changes: 3 - tracked the root-cause why no interwork branch was emitted and fixed it using a '.type'-directive in start.S to mark save_boot_params_ret as a (possible) function-entry.
