Simple patches for Alpha kernels
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:44 EDT
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 :-).
