Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] Use stddef.h in Mini-OS to define size_t

Okay, well ultimately it's up to Grzegorz whether to take the patch as he's currently de facto maintainer of mini-os. However, I don't see any obvious problem in using stddef.h from within minios.

 -- Keir

As you mention Keir stddef.h looks like it should be safe to use in kernel environment. If that helps to compile standard ANSI code using John's approach I see no reason not to apply the patch. Ultimately we would like to make the job of porting apps to Mini-OS as easy as possible.

Could you apply the patch Keir?

Additionally, as I've already told John in a private email, the page fault trap handler seems to be broken (the faulting linear address is bogus). We are working with Aravindh to fix that. Afterwards it will be much easier to pinpoint to cause of the pagefault.
