The Linux Test Project AUGUST 2008 Release Announcement

1) Log Message:
Compile error message occured on ia64 box. You should get a gcc warning on x86: "PAGE_SIZE" redefined. We can avoid the warning:
#ifndef PAGE_SIZE
#define PAGE_SIZE getpagesize()
#endif
But normally upper-case macros means constants, but the above macro is not a constant. Shi Weihua <shiwh@cn.fujitsu.com> & Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com>.
