Commit Message

Yury Norov Sept. 25, 2016, 11:37 a.m. UTC
There are 4 different implementations of readahead() in glibc:
 - arm and mips32 use one located under sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/arm;
 - powerpc32 and wordsize64 has 2 another  implementations in their
   syscalls.list;
 - and there's generic implementation under sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux for
   other ports.

With the [1] it's possible to consolidate all of them except tile32
under sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux. Tile32 like other 32-bit ports passes
offset in a pair of registers, but doesn't need register alignment,
though  has __ASSUME_ALIGNED_REGISTER_PAIRS enabled. So it should be
handled as exception.

[1] https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2016-09/msg00452.html

v2:
 - remove powerpc and wordsize64 implementations;
 - remove __ASSUME_READAHEAD_ALIGN option;
 - add exception for tile32.
v1: https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2016-09/msg00469.html

I think my assumption where one can safely redefine __ALIGNMENT_ARG seems
to be wrong.  It due sysdep.h headers are included multiple times and
without guards, so building for tile I am seeing:

In file included from ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/generic/sysdep.h:22:0,
                 from ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/tile/sysdep.h:21,
                 from ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/readahead.c:23,
                 from ../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/tile/readahead.c:26:
../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sysdep.h:33:0: warning: "__ALIGNMENT_ARG" redefined
 #define __ALIGNMENT_ARG 0,
 ^
../sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/tile/readahead.c:23:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition
 # define __ALIGNMENT_ARG

Based on this your first approach for using __ASSUME seems the most
straightforward solution (sorry for the noise).

Ok, I'll send v3 with __ASSUME_READAHEAD_NO_ALIGN option.
