hi,

I'm trying to implement a system call for x86_64. Mine processor is
dual core opetron.There is very little material on web for
implementing system calls for x86_64 processor for 2.6 series kernel.I
tried to implement a new system call by observing the existing
implementation but to no success.Following are files names and changes
made.


I have a chunk of code to consider:


if (x86_64 != mips) {
        __go_away(now);
}


It's really quite an intuitive piece of code.
