SubjectRe: [PATCH] MIPS: vmlinuz: Fix compiler intrinsics location and build directly
From
Date
Hi James,

Actually, this patch would be better inserted as patch 3 in the series
since it can pull in the generic ashldi3 before the MIPS one is removed
in the final patch. Here's an updated commit message:

MIPS: vmlinuz: Use generic ashldi3 and build directly



In preparation for removing some of the MIPS compiler intrinsics from

arch/mips/lib, first update the build of vmlinuz to use the generic

ashldi3 from lib.



Both ashldi3 and bswapsi objects need to be built with different CFLAGS

for inclusion to vmlinuz rather than simply including the object built

for the main kernel image. But the current copy of the source C file to

arch/mips/boot/compressed can be avoided by simply calling cmd,cc_o_c to

build the object from the source directly. This also removes the need

for the .gitignore file to ignore the copied files, and the extra-y rule

to clean them.

Thanks,
Matt
