Subject: [PATCH] C99 initializers for DEFINE_RATELIMIT_STATE()
Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2008 20:04:42 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

A few months ago (July 25, 2008) the printk ratelimiting code has been
rewritten. This patch added a.o. the new macro DEFINE_RATELIMIT_STATE(). The
patch below converts the initializers in that macro to C99 style.

For more information about the printk ratelimiting rewrite, see also commit
