SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 02/10] Makefile: Prepare for using macros for inline asm
Hi Nadav,

2018-08-10 5:15 GMT+09:00 Nadav Amit <namit@vmware.com>:
> Using macros for inline assembly improves both readability and
> compilation decisions that are distorted by big assembly blocks that use
> alternative sections. Compile macros.S and use it to assemble all C
> files. Currently, only x86 will use it.

I added this in the previous version.

Acked-by: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>


When you send a new version,
please make sure to add Acked-by/Reviewed-by reviewers have given.

Thanks.
