Changes to existing tools

  • cmsfs-fuse: Add write support
    With this support it is possible to add, delete, and modify CMS files under Linux
  • cpuplugd: Code cleanup for messages
  • zipl: Add support for automatic menus
    When the keyword "defaultauto" is specified in the defaultboot section of a zipl.conf file, zipl will automatically build and install a boot menu including all IPL sections listed in the configuration file
  • all: Add gcov build support
    Extend the s390-tools build system to support gcov-based code coverage measurements. To use gcov on a compiled tool, perform these steps:
    1. # make G=1
    2. Run the tool
    3. # gcov file.c (where file.c is the source code file for which code coverage data is requested)
    4. Analyze gcov output written to file.c.gcov
    See the gcov man page for a description of the gcov output format.
    Note: gcov is only available for tools written in C and C++
