I just tried to find what happened here. mn10300 appears to define
the type based on the gcc version:
#if __GNUC__ == 4
typedef unsigned int __kernel_size_t;
typedef signed int __kernel_ssize_t;
typedef unsigned long __kernel_size_t;
typedef signed long __kernel_ssize_t;
while gcc defines it based on whether you are using a Linux targetted
gcc or a bare-metal one:
gcc/config/mn10300/mn10300.h:#define SIZE_TYPE "unsigned int"
I can think of two reasons why it went wrong here:
a) You are using gcc-5.x, and the check in the kernel should be ">="
rather than "==". We should probably fix that regardless
b) You are using a bare-metal gcc rather than a Linux version.
I couldn't find an mn10300 gcc on kernel.org, which one do you use?
