Subject: [patch] score, ptrace: Remove the macros which not be used

From: Chen Gang <>

'COUNTER' and other same kind macros are too common to use, and easy to
get conflict with other modules.

At present, they are not used, so it is OK to simply remove them. And the
related warning (allmodconfig with score):

    CC [M]  drivers/md/raid1.o
  In file included from drivers/md/raid1.c:42:0:
  drivers/md/bitmap.h:93:0: warning: "COUNTER" redefined
   #define COUNTER(x) (((bitmap_counter_t) x) & COUNTER_MAX)
  In file included from ./arch/score/include/asm/ptrace.h:4:0,
                   from include/linux/sched.h:31,
                   from include/linux/blkdev.h:4,
                   from drivers/md/raid1.c:36:
  ./arch/score/include/uapi/asm/ptrace.h:13:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition
   #define COUNTER  38

 Andrew, since the maintainers of score are non-responsive, could you 
 please pick this up?
