2014-09-26Documentation: add makefiles for more targetsPeter Foley1-3/+4
Add a bunch of previously unbuilt source files to the Documentation build machinery. Signed-off-by: Peter Foley <pefoley2@pefoley.com> Signed-off-by: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>
2014-09-26Documentation: use subdir-y to avoid unnecessary built-in.o filesPeter Foley1-3/+3
Change the Documentation makefiles from obj-m to subdir-y to avoid generating unnecessary built-in.o files since nothing in Documentation/ is ever linked in to vmlinux.

2012-03-28mm: move hugepage test examples to tools/testing/selftests/vmDave Young1-1/+1
hugepage-mmap.c, hugepage-shm.c and map_hugetlb.c in Documentation/vm are simple pass/fail tests, It's better to promote them to tools/testing/selftests. Thanks suggestion of Andrew Morton about this. They all need firstly setting up proper nr_hugepages and hugepage-mmap need to mount hugetlbfs. So I add a shell script run_vmtests to do such work which will call the three test programs and check the return value of them. Changes to original code including below: a. add run_vmtests script b. return error when read_bytes mismatch with writed bytes. c. coding style fixes: do not use assignment in if condition [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build the targets before trying to execute them] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: Documentation/vm/ no longer has a Makefile. Fixes "make clean"] Signed-off-by: Dave Young <dyoung@redhat.com> Cc: Wu Fengguang <fengguang.wu@intel.com> Cc: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com> Cc: Pekka Enberg <penberg@cs.helsinki.fi> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2010-12-29[media] Remove the old V4L1 v4lgrab.c fileMauro Carvalho Chehab1-1/+1
This example file uses the old V4L1 API. It also doesn't use libv4l. So, it is completely obsolete. A good example already exists at v4l-utils (v4l2grab.c): http://git.linuxtv.org/v4l-utils.git Reviewed-by: Hans Verkuil <hverkuil@xs4all.nl> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>

Make dnotify_test.c source file and add it to Makefile so that bitrot can be prevented.

2010-03-12Documentation/laptop/: split txt and source filesRandy Dunlap1-1/+1
Documentation/laptops/laptop-mode.txt: Expose example and tool source files in the Documentation/ directory in their own files instead of being buried (almost hidden) in readme/txt files. This should help to prevent bitrot. This will make them more visible/usable to users who may need to use them, to developers who may need to test with them, and to anyone who would fix/update them if they were more visible. Also, if any of these possibly should not be in the kernel tree at all, it will be clearer that they are here and we can discuss if they should be removed.

2008-08-12docsrc: build Documentation/ sourcesRandy Dunlap1-0/+3
Currently source files in the Documentation/ sub-dir can easily bit-rot since they are not generally buildable, either because they are hidden in text files or because there are no Makefile rules for them. This needs to be fixed so that the source files remain usable and good examples of code instead of bad examples. Add the ability to build source files that are in the Documentation/ dir. Add to Kconfig as "BUILD_DOCSRC" config symbol. Use "CONFIG_BUILD_DOCSRC=1 make ..." to build objects from the Documentation/ sources. Or enable BUILD_DOCSRC in the *config system. However, this symbol depends on HEADERS_CHECK since the header files need to be installed (for userspace builds). Built (using cross-tools) for x86-64, i386, alpha, ia64, sparc32, sparc64, powerpc, sh, m68k, & mips.
