SRM cleanup for generic Alpha kernels

SRM cleanup for generic Alpha kernels

Post by Jan-Benedict Gla » Tue, 28 May 2002 06:50:05

Hi Linus!

Please apply this patch to current 2.5.x kernels.

        - alpha_using_srm is #define'd for machine specific kernels, but
          is a real integer variable for generic Alpha kernels. Export

        - The callback_* functions are _always_ there (they might be NOP
          functions owith generic kernels on non-SRM machines).

        - srm_env can now be compiled on generic alpha kernels. An
          explicit check for SRM capability was always there:-)

Please apply!

I guess I found where the error comes from:

(from the 2.5.20 Changelog):

Now I believe, that Alpha also benefits from this. :o) The only thing
I have to do - I guess - is to change the defines for copy_user_page()
and clear_user_page. Adding the not used parameter >pg< should not make
any problems.
