Subject: [PATCH 2.6.21 review I] [20/25] x86_64: get rid of ARCH_HAVE_XTIME_LOCK
Date: Sat, 10 Feb 2007 12:50:33 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070210115033.5AEF313DCE@wotan.suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <200702101250.142420000@suse.de>


From: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com>

ARCH_HAVE_XTIME_LOCK is used by x86_64 arch .  This arch needs to place a
read only copy of xtime_lock into vsyscall page.  This read only copy is
named __xtime_lock, and xtime_lock is defined in
arch/x86_64/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S as an alias.  So the declaration of
xtime_lock in kernel/timer.c was guarded by ARCH_HAVE_XTIME_LOCK define,
defined to true on x86_64.

We can get same result with _attribute__((weak)) in the declaration. linker
should do the job.
