Subject: [PATCH 2/3] compat: add a compat_need_64bit_alignment_fixup() helper
Date: Fri, 31 Jul 2020 14:22:01 +0200
Message-ID: <20200731122202.213333-3-hch@lst.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200731122202.213333-1-hch@lst.de>

Add a helper to check if the calling syscall needs a fixup for
non-natural 64-bit type alignment in the compat ABI.  This will only
return true for i386 syscalls on x86_64.
