    [PATCH] compat: be more consistent about [ug]id_t · 202e5979
    Stephen Rothwell authored
    When I first wrote the compat layer patches, I was somewhat cavalier about
    the definition of compat_uid_t and compat_gid_t (or maybe I just
    misunderstood :-)).  This patch makes the compat types much more consistent
    with the types we are being compatible with and hopefully will fix a few
    bugs along the way.
    	compat type		type in compat arch
    	__compat_[ug]id_t	__kernel_[ug]id_t
    	__compat_[ug]id32_t	__kernel_[ug]id32_t
    	compat_[ug]id_t		[ug]id_t
    The difference is that compat_uid_t is always 32 bits (for the archs we
    care about) but __compat_uid_t may be 16 bits on some.
