commit 6d38c9cf80f47623e5e48190046673bbd0dc410b provided an
arm-specific version of posix_fadvise to address the alternate
argument order the kernel expects on arm, but neglected to address
that powerpc (32-bit) has the same issue. instead of having arch
variant files in duplicate, simply put the alternate version in the
top-level file under the control of a macro defined in syscall_arch.h.
vdso will be available on arm in linux v4.2, the user-space code
for it is in kernel commit 8512287a8165592466cb9cb347ba94892e9c56a5
remove __syscall declaration where it is not needed (aarch64, arm,
microblaze, or1k) and add the hidden attribute where it is (mips).
the register constraints in the non-clang case were tested to work on
clang back to 3.2, and earlier versions of clang have known bugs that
preclude building musl.
there may be other reasons to prefer not to use inline syscalls, but
if so the function-call-based implementations should be added back in
a unified way for all archs.
the reordering of headers caused some risc archs to not see
the __syscall declaration anymore.
this caused build errors on mips with any compiler,
and on arm and microblaze with clang.
we now declare it locally just like the powerpc port does.
the issue at hand is that many syscalls require as an argument the
kernel-ABI size of sigset_t, intended to allow the kernel to switch to
a larger sigset_t in the future. previously, each arch was defining
this size in syscall_arch.h, which was redundant with the definition
of _NSIG in bits/signal.h. as it's used in some not-quite-portable
application code as well, _NSIG is much more likely to be recognized
and understood immediately by someone reading the code, and it's also
shorter and less cluttered.
note that _NSIG is actually 65/129, not 64/128, but the division takes
care of throwing away the off-by-one part.
no problems were detected so far, but the constraints seem to have
been invalid just like the mips ones.
most pure-syscall-wrapper functions compile to the smallest/simplest
code possible (save r7 ; load syscall # ; svc 0 ; restore r7 ; tail
call to __syscall_ret).
now public syscall.h only exposes __NR_* and SYS_* constants and the
variadic syscall function. no macros or inline functions, no
__syscall_ret or other internal details, no 16-/32-bit legacy syscall
renaming, etc. this logic has all been moved to src/internal/syscall.h
with the arch-specific parts in arch/$(ARCH)/syscall_arch.h, and the
amount of arch-specific stuff has been reduced to a minimum.
changes still need to be reviewed/double-checked. minimal testing on
i386 and mips has already been performed.
