Subject: [PATCH 00/23] Removal of binary sysctl support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Sunday 8th November 2009 12:16:43 UTC (over 7 years ago)
This patchset reimplements sys_sysctl as a compatibility wrapper
around /proc/sys.  After which it removes all of the code to all over
the kernel that is used today to implement the binary sysctls.

I am posting this patchset to give everyone a heads up what is in
flight.

I intend to carry all of these patches in my sysctl tree.

If you add new sysctls to other trees please don't set the .ctl_name
or .strategy fields in struct ctl_table, as setting those fields
is unnecessary now and are removed by this patchset.

Last I looked at linux-next is only one new sysctl that is not in
Linus's tree under net/ipv6.  David I will send you a patch in a
bit to remove the unnecessary .ctl_name = CTL_UNNUMBERED line so
that linux-next continues to compile when my tree makes it there.

For your amusement the diffstat of this whole set of changes:
