[PATCH 0/3] make mdelay, udelay and ssleep calls smaller

From: Denis Vlasenko
Date: Tue Aug 22 2006 - 11:07:20 EST

Currently, magic in include/linux/delay.h
inlines mdelay and ssleep, and various arches
do the same to udelay.

This is pointless. We are going to perform a delay of 1000+
CPU cycles anyway, no need to optimize away a few cycles.

This patchset converts calls to these functions
into true functuon calls, with no additional
math done or hidden arguments pushed to stack
at the callsite.

Tested on i386, (almost) allyesconfig kernel:
