Subject: [PATCH 09/17] binfmt_flat: use fixed size type for the on-disk format
Date: Thu, 13 Jun 2019 09:08:55 +0200
Message-ID: <20190613070903.17214-10-hch@lst.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190613070903.17214-1-hch@lst.de>

So far binfmt_flat has only been supported on 32-bit platforms, so the
variable size of the fields didn't matter.  But the upcoming RISC-V
nommu port supports 64-bit CPUs, and we now have a conflict between
the elf2flt creation tool that always uses 32-bit fields and the kernel
that uses (unsigned) long field.  Switch to the userspace view as the
rest of the binfmt_flat format is completely architecture neutral,
and binfmt_flat isn't the right binary format for huge executables to
start with.

While we're at it also ensure these fields are using __be types as
they big endian and are byte swapped when loaded.
