Subject: [PATCH 1/4] Linux Kernel Markers : Architecture agnostic code.
Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2006 18:57:57 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20061220235757.GB28643@Krystal> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20061220235216.GA28643@Krystal>

Linux Kernel Markers, architecture independant code.

This patch also includes non-optimized default behavior from asm-generic in each
architecture where the optimised support is not implemented.
