Description Aron Griffis 2006-05-30 18:28:11 EDT
Recent glibc-kernheaders has dropped /usr/include/asm/asmmacro.h.  This file is
needed for xen compilation on ia64.

$ rpm -qpl glibc-kernheaders-3.0-7.ia64.rpm | grep asmmacro

$ rpm -qpl glibc-kernheaders-3.0-36.ia64.rpm | grep asmmacro
Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2006-05-30 18:46:19 EDT
That's because it's a kernel _PRIVATE_ header. Unless I'm mistaken, there is no
part of the kernel<->user ABI described in it.

The kernel's private headers are not a library provided for userspace. Please
reopen if there's anything in asmmacro.h that you actually have any business
accessing, and be very specific about what it is that you need and why.

Thanks David.  Looks like this dependency was recently fixed in
xen-ia64-unstable upstream.  Sorry for the bother.
