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 https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/13352/ Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org> Acked-by: Guan Xuetao <guanxuetao@mprc.pku.edu.cn> Tested-by: Guan Xuetao <guanxuetao@mprc.pku.edu.cn> Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: Remis Lima Baima <remis.developer@googlemail.com> Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>
