I have a question concerning the format of the source description files in the kernel source. There are (I think) two
files of this type: one is just called "files" and lives in one of the conf directories and the other is called
"files.sgimips" or "files.i386", depending on the arch, and lives in $ARCH/conf.
They interact with config, by basically describing the source code dependency when you switch a certain option on in the
Now what I'd like to know is either a) where to find docs for the format of these files or b) someone to give me a quick
rundown on what you put in them and in what format.
Any replies much appreciated
