Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] asm-generic/uaccess: don't define inline functions if noinline lib/* in use
Date: Wed, 15 Jan 2020 16:21:23 -0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

There are 2 generic varaints of strncpy_from_user() / strnlen_user()
 (1). inline version in asm-generic/uaccess.h
 (2). optimized word-at-a-time version in lib/*

This patch disables #1 if #2 selected. This allows arches to continue
reusing asm-generic/uaccess.h for rest of code

This came up when switching ARC to generic word-at-a-time interface
