SubjectRe: [PATCH] export syscalls


* frm hch@caldera.de "10/25/2001 05:25:40 PM +0000" | sed '1,$s/^/* /'

* Hi Linus,
*
* the appended patch exports the syscalls (GPL-limited), this is needed
* for the Linux-ABI modules so they can use the syscalls in their
* syscall tables for non-Linux personalities.


What is the rationale for marking these as GPL-exclusive symbols ?

I thought system calls were a public interface.

* Of course it doesn't work. We've performed a software upgrade.

* +EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(sys_ioctl);
* +EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(sys_gettimeofday);
