Subject[PATCH] add syscalls.h
| Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2004 16:46:15 -0800

[snip]
| rant. We have soooo many syscalls declared in .c files. We had a bug due
| to this a while back. Problem is, we have no anointed header in which to
| place them. include/linux/syscalls.h would suit. And unistd.h for
| arch-specific syscalls. But that's not appropriate to this patch.


I am working on this. Is anyone else?

I have parts 2.6.1-non-arch* ready for testing, I believe,
except that it will likely require more changes/additions.

I have begun on 2.6.1-arch* but still have a ways to go.

Caveats:
I have only patched 2.6.1. I will update patches for 2.6.2-rc-current.
I have only tested by building allmodconfig on P4.
Have not test-booted yet.

Patch files for 2.6.1 are here:

Do these look OK, as far as they go? or am I way off?
