    Update version number references in README

    jjuhl authored torvalds committed
    When 3.0 is released I believe the README should reflect the new
    numbering.

  1. kbuild: make *config usage docs

    Randy Dunlap authored Sam Ravnborg committed
    Create a kconfig user assistance guide, with a few tips and hints
    about using menuconfig, xconfig, and gconfig.
    
    Mostly contains user interface, environment variables, and search topics,
    along with mini.config/custom.config usage.

  1. x86: simplify "make ARCH=x86" and fix kconfig all.config

    Sam Ravnborg authored Linus Torvalds committed
    Simplify "make ARCH=x86" and fix kconfig so we again can set 64BIT in
    all.config.
    
    For a fix the diffstat is nice:
     6 files changed, 3 insertions(+), 36 deletions(-)
    
    The patch reverts these commits:
     - 0f855aa ("kconfig: add helper to set
       config symbol from environment variable")
     - 2a11328 ("kconfig: use $K64BIT to
       set 64BIT with all*config targets")
    
    Roman Zippel pointed out that kconfig supported string compares so
    the additional complexity introduced by the above two patches were
    not needed.
    
    With this patch we have following behaviour:
    
      # make {allno,allyes,allmod,rand}config [ARCH=...]
      option \ host arch      | 32bit         | 64bit
      =====================================================
      ./.                     | 32bit         | 64bit
      ARCH=x86                | 32bit         | 32bit
      ARCH=i386               | 32bit         | 32bit
      ARCH=x86_64             | 64bit         | 64bit
    
    The general rule are that ARCH= and native architecture takes
    precedence over the configuration.
    
    So make ARCH=i386 [whatever] will always build a 32-bit kernel
    no matter what the configuration says.  The configuration will
    be updated to 32-bit if it was configured to 64-bit and the
    other way around.
    
    This behaviour is consistent with previous behaviour so no
    suprises here.
    
    make ARCH=x86 will per default result in a 32-bit kernel but as
    the only ARCH= value x86 allow the user to select between 32-bit
    and 64-bit using menuconfig.

  1. kconfig: use $K64BIT to set 64BIT with all*config targets

    Sam Ravnborg authored
    The variable K64BIT can now be used to select the
    value of CONFIG_64BIT.
    
    This is for example useful for powerpc to generate
    allmodconfig for both bit sizes - like this:
    make ARCH=powerpc K64BIT=y
    make ARCH=powerpc K64BIT=n
    
    To use this the Kconfig file must use "64BIT" as the
    config value to select between 32 and 64 bit.

    The emergence of so-called "dot releases" that are non-incremental patches

  1. Linux-2.6.12-rc2

    Linus Torvalds authored
    Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
    even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
    archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
    3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
    git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
    infrastructure for it.
    
    Let it rip!
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
