I'm currently debugging the MCA patches for Linux. I'm at 1.3.72.

What I like to know is:

1.) Who calls sys_setup() (filesystems.c) during booting? Since the
function is asmlinkage I assume it is called from an assembler file.
Anyway, I could not find the call in ANY .S file in the source tree.

2.) What is the boot-up sequence of the assembler files -- up to the
point where start_kernel() (main.c) is called? These files are very
difficult to read.

Thanks in advance
