I stuck in simple situation:
USB mouse (or keyboard). n64 kernel (2.4.20), n32 userland.
Userspace application tries to read "input_event" (16 bytes) from
"/dev/input/event0" [ read(fd,&key_ev, sizeof(key_ev)) ],
input core driver treats "input_event" as 24 bytes structure. It is due
to different size of "timeval" (and finally "long") in n64 kernel and
Application gets some garbage as mouse events . No solutions like "ioctl
wrappers" applicable in this case.
I don't want to change any arch independent files, but can not find any
acceptable solution. It looks like headers "/usr/include/linux/input.h"
in root file system and "/include/linux/input.h" in kernel should be the
(All works fine as soon as I declare a new "input_event" structure in
user application that corresponds in size to kernel
structure - but this is not acceptable).
Can anybody advice me what to do with the difference in "input_event"
structure sizes in o32/n32 userland and n64 kernel? Just a general
approach that can be used when driver's read/write operation treat some
values as 64 bit while user application tries to read/write 32-bit
values (based on the same headers).
Please, don't kick me if solution is simple and obvious.
