Merge branch 'x86-x32-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull x32 support for x86-64 from Ingo Molnar: "This tree introduces the X32 binary format and execution mode for x86: 32-bit data space binaries using 64-bit instructions and 64-bit kernel syscalls. This allows applications whose working set fits into a 32 bits address space to make use of 64-bit instructions while using a 32-bit address space with shorter pointers, more compressed data structures, etc." Fix up trivial context conflicts in arch/x86/{Kconfig,vdso/vma.c} * 'x86-x32-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (71 commits) x32: Fix alignment fail in struct compat_siginfo x32: Fix stupid ia32/x32 inversion in the siginfo format x32: Add ptrace for x32 x32: Switch to a 64-bit clock_t x32: Provide separate is_ia32_task() and is_x32_task() predicates x86, mtrr: Use explicit sizing and padding for the 64-bit ioctls x86/x32: Fix the binutils auto-detect x32: Warn and disable rather than error if binutils too old x32: Only clear TIF_X32 flag once x32: Make sure TS_COMPAT is cleared for x32 tasks fs: Remove missed ->fds_bits from cessation use of fd_set structs internally fs: Fix close_on_exec pointer in alloc_fdtable x32: Drop non-__vdso weak symbols from the x32 VDSO x32: Fix coding style violations in the x32 VDSO code x32: Add x32 VDSO support x32: Allow x32 to be configured x32: If configured, add x32 system calls to system call tables x32: Handle process creation x32: Signal-related system calls x86: Add #ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT to <asm/sys_ia32.h> ...
