Re: [Crash-utility] FW: Number of cpus on ARM



Hi

I have tried the arm_get_smp_cpus implementation given below and it works fine on all examples I have tested.

What about ARM64? Same update?

I take that back -- I've got an ARM ramdump where they take all cpus offline before taking the dump.  How about this:

static int
arm_get_smp_cpus(void)
{
        int cpus;

        if (cpus = get_cpus_present())
                return cpus;
        else
                return MAX(get_cpus_online(), get_highest_cpu_online()+1); }

It covers all bases with all the sample dumpfiles I've got on hand.

Dave
