[PATCH v4 0/4] kernel.h: Split out a couple of macros to args.h

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


There are macros in kernel.h that can be used outside of that header.
Split them to args.h and replace open coded variants.

Test compiled with `make allmodconfig` for x86_64.
Test cross-compiled with `make multi_v7_defconfig` for arm.

(Note that positive diff statistics is due to documentation being

In v4:
- fixed compilation error on arm (LKP, Stephen)

In v3:
- split to a series of patches
- fixed build issue on `make allmodconfig` for x86_64 (Andrew)

In v2:
- converted existing users at the same time (Andrew, Rasmus)
- documented how it does work (Andrew, Rasmus)

Andy Shevchenko (4):
  kernel.h: Split out COUNT_ARGS() and CONCATENATE() to args.h
  x86/asm: Replace custom COUNT_ARGS() & CONCATENATE() implementations
  arm64: smccc: Replace custom COUNT_ARGS() & CONCATENATE()
  genetlink: Replace custom CONCATENATE() implementation
