SubjectRe: [RFC] Standard way of generating assembler offsets
From
   From: Pantelis Antoniou <panto@intracom.gr>

If anyone is interested I have already made a perl
script that produces assembler offsets from structure
members.

It doesn't need to run native since it reads the
header files, extract the structures and by using
objdump calculates the offsets automatically.

BTW, I assume you have already taken a look at how we
do this on Sparc64. See arch/sparc64/kernel/check_asm.sh
and the "check_asm" target in arch/sparc64/kernel/Makefile

It also works in all cross-compilation etc. environments.
And I bet it would work on every platform with very minimal
changes, if any.

Franks a lot,
