/*
 * vvar.h: Shared vDSO/kernel variable declarations
 * Copyright (c) 2011 Andy Lutomirski
 * Subject to the GNU General Public License, version 2
 *
 * A handful of variables are accessible (read-only) from userspace
 * code in the vsyscall page and the vdso.  They are declared here.
 * Some other file must define them with DEFINE_VVAR.
 *
 * In normal kernel code, they are used like any other variable.
 * In user code, they are accessed through the VVAR macro.

 * These variables live in a page of kernel data that has an extra RO
 * mapping for userspace.  Each variable needs a unique offset within
 * that page; specify that offset with the DECLARE_VVAR macro.  (If
 * you mess up, the linker will catch it.)
