[PATCH 4.14 29/31] x86/time: Correct the attribute on jiffies definition




4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nathan Chancellor <natechancellor@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 53c13ba8ed39e89f21a0b98f4c8a241bb44e483d upstream.

Clang warns that the declaration of jiffies in include/linux/jiffies.h
doesn't match the definition in arch/x86/time/kernel.c:

arch/x86/kernel/time.c:29:42: warning: section does not match previous declaration [-Wsection]
__visible volatile unsigned long jiffies __cacheline_aligned = INITIAL_JIFFIES;
                                         ^
./include/linux/cache.h:49:4: note: expanded from macro '__cacheline_aligned'
                 __section__(".data..cacheline_aligned")))
                 ^
./include/linux/jiffies.h:81:31: note: previous attribute is here
extern unsigned long volatile __cacheline_aligned_in_smp __jiffy_arch_data jiffies;
                              ^

        ^
./include/linux/linkage.h:39:29: note: expanded from macro '__page_aligned_data'
#define __page_aligned_data     __section(.data..page_aligned) __aligned(PAGE_SIZE)
                                ^
./include/linux/compiler_attributes.h:233:56: note: expanded from macro '__section'
#define __section(S)                    __attribute__((__section__(#S)))
                                                       ^
1 warning generated.

The declaration was changed in commit 7c30f352c852 ("jiffies.h: declare
jiffies and jiffies_64 with ____cacheline_aligned_in_smp") but wasn't
updated here. Make them match so Clang no longer warns.
