    Subject[PATCH 00/21] RFC: Make all arches use <asm-generic/posix_types.h>
    Date
    [Cc: list trimmed to avoid vger filters]

    This patchset changes all architectures that don't already use
    <asm-generic/posix_types.h> to do so. The purpose this threefold:

    1. There is a dramatic amount of code removal.
    2. New types can now be added in one place rather than having to go
    through most of the architectures.
    3. Removal of a bunch of old cruft.

    The first two patches in the series tweak <asm-generic/posix_types.h>
    to be more generally useful: the __kernel_[ug]id32_t types should
    logically default to unsigned int instead of being mirrors of
    __kernel_[ug]id_t, and the __kernel_fsid_t type is made overridable.

    Patches 3-20 are patches for individual architectures; I would greatly
    appreciate it if architecture maintainers would review their
    respective architectures and verify that the transformation is
    correct. These patches also remove the per-architecture fd_set
    macros.

    Patch 21, finally, removes the asm-generic version of the fd_set
    macros. These macros were once upon a time exported to user space,
    but that is now historic. Nowadays, they are nothing more than a
    re-implementation of the bitops that we already have in the kernel, so
    this final patch just replaces those with the appropriate standard
    bitops.
