Subject: [PATCH v3 2/5] m68k: replace NR_syscalls macro from asm/unistd.h
Date: Mon,  1 Oct 2018 18:07:54 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1538397477-4003-3-git-send-email-firoz.khan@linaro.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1538397477-4003-1-git-send-email-firoz.khan@linaro.org>

NR_syscalls macro holds the number of system call exist in m68k
architecture. This macro is currently the part of asm/unistd.h file.
We have to change the value of NR_syscalls, if we add or delete a
system call.

One of patch in this patch series has a script which will generate
a uapi header based on syscall.tbl file. The syscall.tbl file
contains the number of system call information. So we have two
option to update NR_syscalls value.

1. Update NR_syscalls in asm/unistd.h manually by counting the
   no.of system calls. No need to update NR_syscalls until
   we either add a new system call or delete an existing system
   call.

2. We can keep this feature it above mentioned script, that'll
   count the number of syscalls and keep it in a generated file.
   In this case we don't need to explicitly update NR_syscalls
   in asm/unistd.h file.

The 2nd option will be the recommended one. For that, I come up
with another macro - __NR_syscalls which will be updated by the
script and it will be present in api/asm/unistd.h. While __NR_syscalls
isn't strictly part of the uapi, having it as part of the generated
header to simplifies the implementation. So we need to enclose this
macro with #ifdef __KERNEL__ to avoid side effects.
