it was introduced for offloading copying between regular files
in linux commit 29732938a6289a15e907da234d6692a2ead71855
(microblaze and sh does not yet have the syscall number.)
this is mlock with a flags argument, new in linux commit
as usual microblaze and sh don't have allocated syscall number yet.
new in linux v4.3 added for aarch64, arm, i386, mips, or1k, powerpc,
x32 and x86_64.
membarrier is a system wide memory barrier, moves most of the
synchronization cost to one side, new in kernel commit
userfaultfd is useful for qemu and is new in kernel commit
switch_endian is powerpc only for switching endianness, new in commit
this syscall allows fexecve to be implemented without /proc, it is new
in linux v3.19, added in commit 51f39a1f0cea1cacf8c787f652f26dfee9611874
(sh and microblaze do not have allocated syscall numbers yet)
added a x32 fix as well: the io_setup and io_submit syscalls are no
longer common with x86_64, so use the x32 specific numbers.
these syscalls are new in linux v3.18, bpf is present on all
supported archs except sh, kexec_file_load is only allocted for
x86_64 and x32 yet.
bpf was added in linux commit 99c55f7d47c0dc6fc64729f37bf435abf43f4c60
kexec_file_load syscall number was allocated in commit
these syscalls are new in linux v3.17 and present on all supported
archs except sh.
seccomp was added in commit 48dc92b9fc3926844257316e75ba11eb5c742b2c
it has operation, flags and pointer arguments (if flags==0 then it is
the same as prctl(PR_SET_SECCOMP,...)), the uapi header for flag
definitions is linux/seccomp.h
getrandom was added in commit c6e9d6f38894798696f23c8084ca7edbf16ee895
it provides an entropy source when open("/dev/urandom",..) would fail,
the uapi header for flags is linux/random.h
memfd_create was added in commit 9183df25fe7b194563db3fec6dc3202a5855839c
it allows anon mmap to have an fd, that can be shared, sealed and needs no
mount point, the uapi header for flags is linux/memfd.h
it's like rename but with flags eg. to allow atomic exchange of two files,
introduced in linux 3.15 commit 520c8b16505236fc82daa352e6c5e73cd9870cff
With the exception of a fenv implementation, the port is fully featured.
The port has been tested in or1ksim, the golden reference functional
simulator for OpenRISC 1000.
It passes all libc-test tests (except the math tests that
requires a fenv implementation).
The port assumes an or1k implementation that has support for
atomic instructions (l.lwa/l.swa).
Although it passes all the libc-test tests, the port is still
in an experimental state, and has yet experienced very little
