Subject: [PATCH v5 2/5] parisc: add __NR_syscalls along with __NR_Linux_syscalls
Date: Tue, 16 Oct 2018 12:33:35 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

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

One of the 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 inform-
ation. So we have two option to update __NR_Linux_syscalls

1. Update __NR_Linux_syscalls in uapi/asm/unistd.h manually
   by counting the no.of system calls. No need to update
   __NR_Linux_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
   will count the number of syscalls and keep it in a gener-
   ated file. In this case we don't need to explicitly update
   __NR_Linux_syscalls in asm/unistd.h file.

The 2nd option will be the recommended one. For that, I moved
the __NR_Linux_syscalls macro from uapi/asm/unistd.h to asm/
unistd.h. The macro __NR_syscalls also added for making the
name convention same across all architecture. While __NR_sys-
calls isn't strictly part of the uapi, having it as part of
the generated header to simplifies the implementation. We also
need to enclose this macro with #ifdef __KERNEL__ to avoid
side effects.
