[PATCH v3 07/14] sysctl: Add size arg to __register_sysctl_init

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


This commit adds table_size to __register_sysctl_init in preparation for
the removal of the sentinel elements in the ctl_table arrays (last empty
markers). And though we do *not* remove any sentinels in this commit, we
set things up by calculating the ctl_table array size with ARRAY_SIZE.

We add a table_size argument to __register_sysctl_init and modify the
register_sysctl_init macro to calculate the array size with ARRAY_SIZE.
The original callers do not need to be updated as they will go through
the new macro.
