    [PATCH] Add epoll compat_ code to fs/compat.c · f6dfb4fd
    Davide Libenzi authored
    IA64 and ARM-OABI are currently using their own version of epoll compat_
    An architecture needs epoll_event translation if alignof(u64) in 32 bit
    mode is different from alignof(u64) in 64 bit mode.  If an architecture
    needs epoll_event translation, it must define struct compat_epoll_event in
    asm/compat.h and set CONFIG_HAVE_COMPAT_EPOLL_EVENT and use
    compat_sys_epoll_ctl and compat_sys_epoll_wait.
    All 64 bit architecture should use compat_sys_epoll_pwait.
    [sfr: restructure and move to fs/compat.c, remove MIPS version
    of compat_sys_epoll_pwait, use __put_user_unaligned]
