           Summary: eliminate text relocation in BUSmemcpy.S
           Product: xorg
           Version: CVS_head
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P2
         Component: Server/general
        AssignedTo: xorg-bugzilla-noise at freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: ajax at nwnk.net

hw/xfree86/os-support/misc/BUSmemcpy.S is not PIC code.  this forces the server
binary to have a text relocation, which hurts performance (marginally) and
prevents the executable from being being built -fPIE (enables runtime address
space randomization security feature in PaX).

nothing in-tree ever calls xf86BusToMem or xf86MemToBus, so we could just delete
this code...
