[PATCH] kexec: export kexec.h to user space

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Add userspace definitions, guard all relevant kernel structures.
While at it document stuff and remove now useless userspace hint.

It is easy to add the relevant system call to respective libc's,
but it seems pointless to have to duplicate the data structures.

This is based on the kexec-tools headers, with the exception of
just using int on return (succes or failure) and using size_t
instead of 'unsigned long int' for the number of segments argument
of kexec_load().
