Subject: [PATCH v2 1/9] Makefile: Prepare for using macros for inline asm
Date: Mon, 4 Jun 2018 04:21:23 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180604112131.59100-2-namit@vmware.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180604112131.59100-1-namit@vmware.com>

Using macros for inline assembly improves both readability and
compilation decisions that are distorted by big assembly blocks that use
alternative sections. Compile macros.S and use it to assemble all C
files. Currently, only x86 will use it.
