    syscalls/core: Prepare CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER=y for compat syscalls · 7303e30e
    Dominik Brodowski authored
    It may be useful for an architecture to override the definitions of the
    COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE0() and __COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINEx() macros in
    <linux/compat.h>, in particular to use a different calling convention
    for syscalls. This patch provides a mechanism to do so, based on the
    previously introduced CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER. If it is enabled,
    <asm/sycall_wrapper.h> is included in <linux/compat.h> and may be used
    to define the macros mentioned above. Moreover, as the syscall calling
    convention may be different if CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER is set,
    the compat syscall function prototypes in <linux/compat.h> are #ifndef'd
    out in that case.
    
    As some of the syscalls and/or compat syscalls may not be present,
    the COND_SYSCALL() and COND_SYSCALL_COMPAT() macros in kernel/sys_ni.c
    as well as the SYS_NI() and COMPAT_SYS_NI() macros in
    kernel/time/posix-stubs.c can be re-defined in <asm/syscall_wrapper.h> iff
    CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER is enabled.
