    SubjectRe: share COMPATIBLE_IOCTL()s across architectures
       From: Pavel Machek <>
    Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2003 00:21:57 +0100

    This patche moves common COMPATIBLE_IOCTLs to
    include/linux/compat_ioctl.h, enabling pretty nice cleanups:

    Please be careful. For anything non-trivial there can be major
    differences between compat layers.

    I say this now because eventually I want this compat stuff
    to support multiple-compilations, using some COMPAT_NAME(foo)
    macro scheme and some Makefile hackery.

    This would allow, for example, x86_64 to have an x86_32 and
    x86_32_sysv compat layer in one build. So for example in this case
    fs/compat.c would be built twice, once with x86_32 compat types
    and once with x86_32_sysv types.
