This makes it easy to switch between different indent styles and also makes the kernel style easily available for any filetype mode (c++, awk, ...) that is managed by the Emacs cc-mode.

2009-01-15[IA64] SN specific version of dma_get_required_mask()John Keller
Create a platform specific version of dma_get_required_mask() for ia64 SN Altix. All SN Altix platforms support 64 bit DMA addressing regardless of the size of system memory. Create an ia64 machvec for dma_get_required_mask, with the SN version unconditionally returning DMA_64BIT_MASK. Signed-off-by: John Keller <jpk@sgi.com> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
