kbuild: asm-generic support
There is an increasing amount of header files shared between individual architectures in asm-generic. To avoid a lot of dummy wrapper files that just include the corresponding file in asm-generic provide some basic support in kbuild for this. With the following patch an architecture can maintain a list of files in the file arch/$(ARCH)/include/asm/Kbuild To use a generic file just add: generic-y += <name-of-header-file.h> For each file listed kbuild will generate the necessary wrapper in arch/$(ARCH)/include/generated/asm. When installing userspace headers a wrapper is likewise created. The original inspiration for this came from the unicore32 patchset - although a different method is used. The patch includes several improvements from Arnd Bergmann. Michael Marek contributed Makefile.asm-generic. Remis Baima did an intial implementation along to achive the same - see Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <> Acked-by: Guan Xuetao <> Tested-by: Guan Xuetao <> Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <> Cc: Remis Lima Baima <> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <>
