/FUNCTIONPADMIN (Create Hotpatchable Image)
Prepares an image for hotpatching.
The amount of padding to add to the beginning of each function in bytes. On x86 this defaults to 5 bytes of padding and on x64 this defaults to 6 bytes. On other targets a value must be provided.
In order for the linker to produce a hotpatchable image, the .obj files must have been compiled with /hotpatch (Create Hotpatchable Image).
When you compile and link an image with a single invocation of cl.exe, /hotpatch implies /functionpadmin.
