Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-04-06 18:47:33 EST
Description of Problem:

Attached is small archive with "trivial" patches for Alpha kernel.
They apply to kernels from beta, and rawhide, and a number of other
as well. :-)

Here are short description:

math-emu.patch      - a correction for denormalized numbers lifted
                      from current 2.4.19-pre
memsetS.patch       - an obvious typo in an assembler directive
mga_drv.patch       - kills few hundreds spurious warnings and
                      simplifies production code (the patch is valid
                      does not matter how types in question are
                      defined for a given platform).                  
nr_syscalls.patch   - bad define on the top of entry.S (try 'grep quad...').

Actually for the last one the current 2.4.19-pre includes also
a compile time check because this number _is_ changing.

The above does not mean that there are no other problems in Alpha
kernels (they are there and some are pretty severe :-).
