Subject: [PATCH RT] powerpc: Fixup compile and lazy-preempt
Date: Tue, 3 Dec 2019 18:37:43 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Since the softirq rework 32bit POWER does not compile because
get_current() is not provided - just the `current' macro.
Use the `current' instead.

Since the v5.2-RT series, the lazy-preempt code is broken. It loads the
lazy-counter and flags from the R9 but R2 should be used.
