[PATCH v4 0/4] m68k: system call table generation support
From: Firoz Khan
Date: Fri Oct 26 2018 - 01:06:56 EST
The purpose of this patch series is, we can easily add/modify/delete
system call table support by changing entry in syscall.tbl file
instead of manually changing many files. The other goal is to unify
the system call table generation support implementation across all
The system call tables are in different format in all architecture.
It will be difficult to manually add, modify or delete the system
calls in the respective files manually. To make it easy by keeping
a script and which'll generate uapi header file and syscall table
syscall.tbl contains the list of available system calls along with
system call number and corresponding entry point. Add a new system
call in this architecture will be possible by adding new entry in
the syscall.tbl file.
Adding a new table entry consisting of:
- System call number.
- System call name.
- Entry point name.
ARM, s390 and x86 architecuture does exist the similar support. I
leverage their implementation to come up with a generic solution.
I have done the same support for work for alpha, ia64, microblaze,
mips, parisc, powerpc, sh, sparc, and xtensa. Below mentioned git
repository contains more details.

Finally, this is the ground work to solve the Y2038 issue. We need
to add two dozen of system calls to solve Y2038 issue. So this patch
series will help to add new system calls easily by adding new entry
in the syscall.tbl.
