Subject[PATCH 0/5] Consolidate init_task handling
From
Date

Hi Linus,

It doesn't seem useful to have the init_task in a header file rather than
in a normal source file. We could consolidate init_task handling instead.
Do want to do this? If so, this is probably something we'd want to do at
the end of the merge window, though not necessarily this one.

Here's a series of patches that consolidate init_task handling:

(1) Alter the INIT_TASK_DATA linker script macro to set init_thread_union
and init_stack rather than defining these in C.

Insert init_task and init_thread_into into the init_stack area in the
linker script as appropriate to the configuration, with different
section markers so that they end up correctly ordered.

We can then get merge ia64's init_task.c into the main one.

We then have a bunch of single-use INIT_*() macros that seem only to be
macros because they used to be used per-arch. We can then unroll these in
place of the user and get rid of a few lines and a lot of backslashes.

(2) Unroll INIT_TASK().

(3) Unroll various small INIT_*() macros that are defined conditionally.
Unroll them and surround them by #if[n]def/#endif in the .c file as it
takes fewer lines.

(4) Unroll INIT_SIGNALS() and INIT_SIGHAND().

(5) Unroll INIT_STRUCT_PID.

The patches can be found here also:
