Subject: [PATCH] Fix compile error on ppc/uClibc platform: 'AT_BASE_PLATFORM'
This issue was reported via bug #245.
The method for obtaining cpu type on the ppc64 platform was recently
modified to detect the case when we're running on a kernel that has
not been updated to recognize the native processor type. The cpu
type returned in the case where the native processor type is newer
than POWER7 will be "CPU_PPC64_ARCH_V1" (architected CPU type).
The method used for detecting when the kernel does not recognize the
native processor type is to inspect the aux vector and compare
in glibc's elf.h around 5 years ago, but was never added to uClibc,
so the code that implements the above-described method fails to compile
on systems using uClibc.
Since the above-described method of using the aux vector is only
required for ppc64 systems, and ppc64-based platforms always use glibc
(which has the AT_BASE_PLATFORM macro defined), we now wrap that code
with '#if PPC64_ARCH' to prevent problems on other architectures.
