Even with holidays in the US, there has been considerable
progress and I want to thank everyone for reviewing
these patches so quickly.
I think all outstanding RTEMS patches are committed.
There is always the possibility something will turn up
Complete from newlib's perspective:
+ pthread push/pop patch
- requires coordination of another patch to RTEMS and
a newlib version bump on our side
+ Sebastian's variable size cpuset patch
+ add pthread affinity patch
+ Double pass that restrict didn't end up in the traditional
prototype section of documentation.
+ Formatting issues in documentation addressed.
I have a couple of things left on my list:
+ review comments in pthread.h. I wrote them years ago
against and they reflect an old draft standard.
+ unistd.h - Cygwin and RTEMS need to figure out how to address
the multitude of OS defines. Maybe switching to feature flags.
Or deciding that having a prototype properly bracketed by
standard is enough. Being prototypes doesn't ALWAYS mean a
target implements something. Of course, target specific methods
or _np ones need caution.
I don't have any expectation of code changes on the unistd.h
before the end of the year. We need to define an approach.
And I am only being hopeful about getting to pthread.h. I
have two weeks of travel and unless I do it on an airplane,
it won't happen. :)
Thanks for supporting us through these patches.
