[PATCH v3 04/14] sysctl: Add size argument to init_header

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


In this commit, we add a table_size argument to the init_header function
in order to initialize the ctl_table_size variable in ctl_table_header.
Even though the size is not yet used, it is now initialized within the
sysctl subsys. We need this commit for when we start adding the
table_size arguments to the sysctl functions (e.g. register_sysctl,
__register_sysctl_table and __register_sysctl_init).

Note that in __register_sysctl_table we temporarily use a calculated
size until we add the size argument to that function in subsequent
