[RFC PATCH 01/10] prctl: Add skeleton for PR_SVE_{SET,GET}_VL controls

Dave Martin Dave.Martin@arm.com
Thu Jan 12 11:26:00 GMT 2017


This patch adds a do-nothing skeleton for the arm64 Scalable Vector
Extension control prctls.

These prctls are only avilable with

    CONFIG_ARM64=y
    CONFIG_ARM64_SVE=y

Otherwise they will compile out and return -EINVAL if attempted
from userspace.

The backend functions sve_{set,get}_task_vl() will be fleshed out
with actual functionality in subsequent patches.

There will probably also be a call to discover the signal frame size
(MINSIGSTKSZ equivalent) for the current configuration, something like

 * PR_GET_MINSIGSTKSZ

This series doesn't add this yet: only the PR_SVE_{SET,GET}_VL prctls
are provided.
