Yes, DEBUG_LOCKS, MUTEX_PROFILING (O.B.E), and PAE are the ones I know of. =
could employ a similar strategy for these btw. For example, you could do=20
this for PAE:
#define PAE_DEPEND(name) MODULE_DEPEND(name, pae, 1, 1, 1)
#define PAE_DEPEND(name) MODULE_DEPEND(name, pae, 0, 0, 0)
#define PAE_DEPEND(name) struct __hack
#define DECLARE_MODULE(name, ...) \
It sucks to have the MD-ness there. Could perhaps have an MI macro like th=
#define MACHINE_MODULE_DEPEND struct __hack
PAE bits from above but s/PAE_DEPEND/MACHINE_MODULE_DEPEND/. In general we=
try to keep the number of such ABI-breaking options to a very bare minimum,=
so perhaps one-off hacks in sys/module.h rather than abstracting it is=20
