GLIBC patch accepted: sync hwcap.h with the kernel

GNU Project


Patch for Power architecture accepted. Linux commit b4b56f9 introduced a new HWCAP 2 bit (PPC_FEATURE2_HTM_NOSC) to indicate that the kernel now aborts a memory transaction when a syscall is made. Commit 3c13f28 syncs glibc’s hwcap.h with the kernel’s.


GLIBC patches accepted: fixes for memchr

GNU Logo

Two fixes for memchr for Power architecture accepted in GLIBC. The first is an obvious copy-paste error in the memchr implementation for powerpc32 (commit 854e005).

The second is a fix for the IFUNC selector that was wrongly picking the internal __GI_memchr implementation instead of the optimized __memchr_power7 version (commit 502b91d).
