The five proposed changes for TILE are all in private branches to review
and merge. I believe they're all trivial in general; the only exception is
the firstversions.awk change, which I checked for other architectures and
confirmed was a no-op on them. The branches are:
cmetcalf/tile_firstversions - fix version range bug
cmetcalf/tile_elf_h - add Tile elf.h constants
cmetcalf/tile_not_cancel_h - change include brackets from "" to <> in grantpt.c
cmetcalf/tile_epoll_pwait - add internal linkage name for epoll_pwait
cmetcalf/tile_faccessat - use fxstatat, not fstatat
There's the update to config.sub and config.guess, which should be fairly safe;
I went ahead and grabbed the latest from the "config" git repository and
put them in a private glibc branch for merging:
cmetcalf/tile_config - config.guess, config.sub updates
I'd be happy to make a single tile branch holding all the changes if that
would be helpful.
I also have two changes for ports that would need to be backported
to bring everything together, based on the changes above:
- Add the openat() version of linux/generic/not-cancel.h
- Remove now-unnecessary epoll_pwait() internal def in linux/generic/epoll_wait.c
These are also both pretty trivial, and in any case only affect the tile
architecture at this point.
