Description Chip Christian 2001-05-07 16:43:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
linux/arch/i386/kernel/entry.S is broken in that if I choose to 
install TUX neither monolithic nor as a module all higher numbered
system calls are moved one position too low.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build a kernel with POSIX ACL support
2.Try to use it

Actual Results:  Calling sys_acl_get calls sys_acl_set.  Calling 
sys_acl_set returns

Additional info:

thanks, i've applied your fix, it should show up in the next kernel errata.
Comment 2 Chip Christian 2001-05-08 14:38:16 EDT
I hope you didn't apply my patch as is...  I put the else after the inner
endif, when it obviously needs to come before!
