Backported ARM EABI system call numbering fix. (579 bytes, patch)

Description Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-22 21:54:02 UTC
libattr's syscalls.c contains a set of system call numbers copied from Linux
kernel header files.  On ARM EABI systems, system call numbering differs from
that on non-EABI systems, and the set included in syscalls.c in libattr 2.4.32
does not work on EABI systems.

This problem is fixed in later upstream versions of libattr.  I have extracted
the specific patch for your convenience.  Would you please consider applying
this patch to the Fedora libattr package, or alternatively, rebasing to a newer
upstream libattr version?

Thanks for your time.
