Description Chip Christian 2001-05-07 20:43:40 UTC
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:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build a kernel with POSIX ACL support
2.Try to use it
3.
	

Actual Results:  Calling sys_acl_get calls sys_acl_set.  Calling 
sys_acl_set returns
ENOSYS

Comment 1 Ingo Molnar 2001-05-08 08:40:56 UTC
thanks, i've applied your fix, it should show up in the next kernel errata.


Comment 2 Chip Christian 2001-05-08 18:38:16 UTC
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!
