A quick grep in src/sys gave me this: MALLOC_DEFINE(M_INTRNG, "intr", "intr interrupt handling"); Also: arm/arm/machdep.c:#if __ARM_ARCH >= 6 && !defined(INTRNG) arm/arm/machdep.c:#error armv6 requires INTRNG So it's about interrupts and mandatory for arm processors, I suspect it's and arm (and mips too, since I found grep hits there too) specific interrupts handling method. this looks like the original RFC for this code: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-arm/2014-April/007915.html -- Guido Falsi <m...@madpilot.net> _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
