kbuild: complain about missing system calls
Most system calls seems to get added to i386 first. This patch automatically generates a warning for any new system call which is implemented on i386 but not the architecture currently being compiled. On PowerPC at the moment, for example, it results in these warnings: init/missing_syscalls.h:935:3: warning: #warning syscall sync_file_range not implemented init/missing_syscalls.h:947:3: warning: #warning syscall getcpu not implemented init/missing_syscalls.h:950:3: warning: #warning syscall epoll_pwait not implemented The file scripts/ list a number of legacy system calls that are ignored because they only makes sense on i386 systems. Other contributors to this patch are Russell King <> and St├ęphane Jourdois <> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <>
