SubjectRe: RLIM_INFINITY inconsistency between archs
   Date: Thu, 27 Jul 2000 11:56:38 -0700 (PDT)
From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@transmeta.com>

I like this one. It puts the thing in the same tree as the modules
themselves, so it's self-contained. Let's _document_ it as a symlink, and
make "make modules_install" do that part too (I don't use modules so I'd
rather somebody else sent me the tested - likely one-liner - patch to do
this).

You asked for it, you got it.....

P.S. Vendors should test this against their kernel packaging tools,
which tend to do all sorts of non-standard stuff because they try to
build build multiple kernels and multiple sets of modules from a single
kernel source tree.
