Subject: [COMMITTED 2.34] linux: Add sparck brk implementation
Date: Sun, 19 Dec 2021 22:58:20 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Adhemerval Zanella <>

It turned that the generic implementation of brk() does not work
for sparc, since on failure kernel will just return the previous
input value without setting the conditional register.

This patches adds back a sparc32 and sparc64 implementation removed
by 720480934ab9107.

Checked on sparc64-linux-gnu and sparcv9-linux-gnu.

(cherry picked from commit 5b86241a032c50462988bdd1439e078384690d34)
