do_* declarations (was: Re: [Xen-ia64-devel] [PATCH] added multicall)


on ia64, the do_* functions for hypercalls are called in C.  However, they are 
not declared in any .h file.  I think it is cleaner to declare them in an 
header file rather than locally.  The question is in which header file.
Thank you for any suggestion.

The do_* functions are at least:
extern long do_ni_hypercall(void);
extern long do_dom0_op(dom0_op_t *u_dom0_op);
extern long do_memory_op(int cmd, void *arg);
extern long do_multicall(multicall_entry_t *call_list, unsigned int nr_calls);
extern long do_event_channel_op(evtchn_op_t *uop);
extern long do_xen_version(int cmd, void *arg);
extern long do_console_io(int cmd, int count, char *buffer);
extern long do_grant_table_op(unsigned int cmd, void *uop, unsigned int

Why not.  I send this mail to xen-devel, so that we can have official advices!
