Lin­ux­u­la­tor progress

This week­end I made some progress in the lin­ux­u­la­tor:

  • I MFCed the report­ing of some linux-syscalls to 9-stable and 8-stable.
  • I updated my lin­ux­u­la­tor-dtrace patch to a recent -cur­rent. I already com­piled it on i386 and arundel@ has it com­piled on amd64. I counted more than 500 new DTrace probes. Now that DTrace res­cans for SDT probes when a ker­nel mod­ule is loaded, there is no ker­nel panic any­more when the linux mod­ule is loaded after the DTrace mod­ules and you want to use DTrace. I try to com­mit this at a morn­ing of a day where I can fix things dur­ing the day in case some prob­lems show up which I did not notice dur­ing my testing.
  • I cre­ated a PR for portmgr@ to repocopy a new linux_base port.
  • I set the expi­ra­tion date of linux_base-fc4 (only used by 7.x and upstream way past its EoL) and all depen­dent ports. It is set to the EoL of the last 7.x release, which can not use a later linux_base port. I also added a com­ment which explains that the date is the EoL of the last 7.x release.

    Do you know the cur­rent state of a _x64 lin­ux­u­la­tor even if no one is work­ing on it?
    There were patches from Cha­gin Dmitry from sev­eral years ago but they never made it in I guess.

    64 bit sup­port is some­thing that I’m very much inter­ested in and would con­sider pay­ing or donat­ing to help pri­or­i­tize it.

    No, I do not know the sta­tus of the 64bit ver­sion of the lin­ux­u­la­tor. There shouldn’t be that much changes since then in the lin­ux­u­la­tor, so any­one with inter­est to con­tinue his work, wouldn’t need to start from scratch, I think.
