[PATCH] Avoid namespace pollution in <asm/param.h>
In commit 3D59121003721a8fad11ee72e646fd9d3076b5679c, the x86 and x86-64 <asm/param.h> was changed to include <linux/config.h> for the configurable timer frequency. However, asm/param.h is sometimes used in userland (it is included indirectly from <sys/param.h>), so your commit pollutes the userland namespace with tons of CONFIG_FOO macros. This greatly confuses software packages (such as BusyBox) which use CONFIG_FOO macros themselves to control the inclusion of optional features. After a short exchange, Christoph approved this patch Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
