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

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 and
expand out various macros.

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 expand these in
place of the user and get rid of a few lines and a lot of backslashes.

(2) Expand INIT_TASK() in place.

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

(4) Expand INIT_SIGNALS() and INIT_SIGHAND() in place.

(5) Expand INIT_STRUCT_PID in place.

These macros can then be discarded.

The patches can be found here also:
