Subject: [PATCH] x86-64: remove int 0xcc from entry_64.S documentation
Date: Mon, 15 Aug 2011 19:26:50 -0300
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Commit 3ae36655b97a03fa1decf72f04078ef945647c1a (x86-64: Rework vsyscall
emulation and add vsyscall= parameter) removed the special use of the
0xcc IDT vector.

Remove it from Documentation/x86/entry_64.txt also.
