[patch 0/7] uml: some invasive changes for -mm

From: Blaisorblade
Date: Sun Apr 24 2005 - 13:44:25 EST

This is the first of a series of 7 invasive patches for the -mm tree, which
are to be reviewed (not only by UML folks), and possibly merged for the
2.6.13 cycle.

The first one splits the i386 syscall table out of entry.S, without any real
change for them (the file is included in the old place); if there are any
syscall table changes, please be careful; this maybe means place *this* one
before the others (or even merge now the i386 code movement part); I don't
want that this patch is modified and that subtle bugs are introduced. The
code movement is a really trivial code movement, however (no hidden changes).

This is needed to enable us to include the i386 syscall table, so that we are
sure that they match. I already handled the real differences between i386 and
UML (see the patch).

uml: fix syscall table by including $(SUBARCH)'s one, for i386

uml: quick fix syscall table for x86_64

uml: fix syscall table by including $(SUBARCH)'s one, for x86-64

uml: redo console locking
[ It's invasive, but seems to work well; wide testing is needed ]

uml - hostfs: avoid buffers
[ This is something which should work, even because you said that; I've
partially verified this myself ]

uml: commentary about forking flag
[ Jeff, give a look and possibly correct it. ]

uml ubd: handle readonly status
[ I cc'ed Jens Axboe ]

They are not to be confused with the previous series of 6 patches I also sent
today, which are mostly little or already tested patches (list below); the
explicitly marked one are urgent for 2.6.12, while for the other just take
your choice (they should be trivial and have been tested):

[LIST of patches TO MERGE]:
uml: workaround old problematic sed behaviour [compile-fix, for 2.6.12]

uml: add nfsd syscall when nfsd is modular [for 2.6.12]

uml: support AES i586 crypto driver [for 2.6.12]

uml kbuild: avoid useless rebuilds [for 2.6.13]

uml: inline empty proc

uml: move va_copy conditional def

Thanks a lot for the attention and regards.
