Subject: Re: [PATCH] MIPS: vmlinuz: Fix compiler intrinsics location and build
 directly

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
