Subject: [PATCH] init/Kconfig: Remove USELIB syscall by default
Date: Tue, 12 Apr 2022 14:25:20 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The uselib syscall has been long deprecated. There's no need to keep
this enabled by default under X86_32.

 	  This option enables the uselib syscall, a system call used in the
 	  dynamic linker from libc5 and earlier.  glibc does not use this
