Linux kernel
This file was moved to Documentation/admin-guide/README.rst
Please notice that there are several guides for kernel developers and users. These guides can be rendered in a number of formats, like HTML and PDF.
In order to build the documentation, use ``make htmldocs`` or ``make pdfdocs``.
There are various text files in the Documentation/ subdirectory, several of them using the Restructured Text markup notation. See Documentation/00-INDEX for a list of what is contained in each file.
Please read the Documentation/process/changes.rst file, as it contains the requirements for building and running the kernel, and information about the problems which may result by upgrading your kernel.

folder ABI/ - 2017-02-19 22:34:00

This directory attempts to document the ABI between the Linux kernel and userspace, and the relative stability of these interfaces. Due to the everchanging nature of Linux, and the differing maturity levels, these interfaces should be used by userspace programs in different ways.
We have four different levels of ABI stability, as shown by the four different subdirectories in this location. Interfaces may change levels of stability according to the rules described below.

Early userspace support
Last update: 2004-12-20 tlh
"Early userspace" is a set of libraries and programs that provide various pieces of functionality that are important enough to be available while a Linux kernel is coming up, but that don't need to be run inside the kernel itself.

Today, the most extended way to use firmware in the Linux kernel is linking it statically in a header file. Which has political and technical issues:

Linux on the Nios II architecture
This is a port of Linux to Nios II (nios2) processor.
In order to compile for Nios II, you need a version of GCC with support for the generic system call ABI. Please see this link for more information on how compiling and booting software for the Nios II platform: rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/NiosIILinuxUserManual">http://www.rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/NiosIILinuxUserManual
