Subject: Re: [PATCH] Documentation: Restrict TSC test code to x86

I've added Yann and Michal to the discussion.

The issue is that we have

hostprogs-y := disable-tsc-ctxt-sw-stress-test
disable-tsc-on-off-stress-test disable-tsc-test

in Documentation/prctl/Makefile

and disable-tsc-ctxt-sw-stress-test has x86 assembler inside and must
be restricted only to this host architecture.
