I do not think this is valid notice form about 'public domain'. At very least it should specify who wrote the code and put it into the public domain.

Look for other examples in the tree.


Why redefining this instead of including machine/asmacros.h ?

Adding the header fails to compile with:

In file included from /usr/src/lib/libc/amd64/string/strlen.S:7:
/usr/include/machine/asm.h:88:9: error: 'ALTENTRY' macro redefined [-Werror,-Wmacro-redefined]
#define ALTENTRY(x)     _ENTRY(x)

with a host of other errors

Using it instead of asm.h results in:

/usr/src/lib/libc/amd64/string/strlen.S:8:22: error: expected ')' in parentheses expression
__asm__(".ident\t\"" "$FreeBSD$" "\"");

someone(tm) needs to clean this up and I don't think it's worth the effort now
