At least you would need a header to declare these two functions and make them visible so that the remainder of the codebase will not have to know about git_setitimer(), no? Or does your header files on NonStop declare setitimer() but does not implement it? As your proposed name is not compat/tandem.c but more generic sounding compat/itimer.c, we would have to plan for systems other than NonStop, so we may later have to introduce makefile variables to ask that header file to declare the structure and define the constants that are missing from such a system. While you are porting to NonStop, you may not have to define/declare them, but knowing that these files are the place to later do so is part of the planning. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
