Regarding COMPAT_OSF1: I'm not totally sure, but it seems that Alpha's
COMPAT_LINUX uses COMPAT_OSF1 as dependency (even if there is no proper
dependency in the module), because there are osf1_* calls. Some more
compat mess to untangle, it seems...
In all cases, it's only a few functions that are just wrappers, so it
probably shouldn't be too complicated to solve.
It's a total of 15 functions (I generated this list by building an alpha GENERIC
kernel with COMPAT_OSF1 removed):
All of these are references from linux_sysent.o
Yes. Most of these functions are basic wrappers, that I think we can just
gather into a linux_misc.c or similar.
Do we know if COMPAT_OSF1 has actually ever been supported on HPPA? It is
commented out in GENERIC since rev1, and there is some Alpha-specific code
in osf1_misc.c that could hardly have compiled on HPPA.
