RPC Stubs Implemented by Hand

IRC, freenode, #hurd, 2013-07-28

<teythoon> why is libfshelp/start-translator-long.c doing the fsys_startup
  rpcs by hand instead of using the mig generated stubs?

<teythoon> btw, anyone knows why libfshelp/start-translator-long.c
  implements the fsys_startup rpc by hand?
<braunr> teythoon: no idea
<teythoon> maybe b/c of the need to specify a timeout? can one do that with
  the mig stubs?
<braunr> yes
<braunr> select used to be implemented that way

Generate the Request and Reply Routines from the Synchronous Routines

<braunr> i guess it could

Compiler Optimization

<teythoon> braunr: inlining the mach generated x_server_procedure functions
  shaved 5 minutes off my hurd package build :)
<teythoon> i guess fakeroot-tcp benefits most from this... I'm going to try
  this w/o fakeroot and on real hardware shortly
<braunr> teythoon: nice
<teythoon> :)
