Adhemerval Zanella Feb. 10, 2020, 7:20 p.m.
With all Linux ABIs using the expected Linux kABI to indicate
syscalls errors, the INTERNAL_SYSCALL_DECL is an empty declaration
on all ports.

This patch removes the 'err' argument on INTERNAL_SYSCALL* macro
and remove the INTERNAL_SYSCALL_DECL usage.

Checked with a build against all affected ABIs.

This change seems like it would fit more into patch 13?

(Also for mips64, s390, s390x, x86-64.)

Thanks,
Florian

The comment is now outdated, I think, and the code should be simplified
in this change (maybe as a separate commit).  You could also use long
int instead of long here.

Thanks,
Florian

I see some cases where you modify lines which contain INTERNAL_SYSCALL
without changing it to INTERNAL_SYSCALL_CALL.  Maybe you can fix those
as well?

Same for long vs long int.

Apart from the other quirks I mentioned, this patch looks okay to me.

Thanks,
Florian

Ack, I will update the patch.

I will check which is current kernel behaviour and check if this comment
still holds.  I fixed the long use internally.
