The upstream kernel 4.6 contains the following functional enhancements developed by the Linux on z Systems development team:
- User space interface for call logical-processor
- Provide a user space interface to issue call logical-processor instructions to allow user space to retrieve the list of installed PCI functions.
This patch contains:
- Kernel message catalog.
- Add support for automatic message tags to the printk macro families
dev_xyz and pr_xyz. The message tag consists of a component name and
a 24 bit hash of the message text. For each message that is
documented in the included kernel message catalog a man page can be
created with a script (which is included in the patch). The
generated man pages contain explanatory text that is intended to
help understand the messages.
Note that only s390 specific messages are prepared appropriately and included in the generated message catalog.
This patch is optional as it is very unlikely to be accepted in upstream kernel, but is recommended for all distributions which are built based on the 'Development stream'.
