Last month I wrote about using cscope for Linux kernel development. The find(1) snippet that I gave was not very precise, assuming one is only interested in a specific machine such as OMAP3.
This was pointed out to me by a coworker so here is a more refined set of search queries without all of the -prune fuss, specifically targeting OMAP3:
find -L ./arch/arm/mach-omap2/ ./arch/arm/plat-omap/ \ ./arch/arm/common/ ./arch/arm/include/ ./arch/arm/kernel/ \ ./arch/arm/lib/ ./arch/arm/mm/ ./arch/arm/nwfpe/ \ ./arch/arm/oprofile/ ./arch/arm/vfp/ ./include/ ./drivers/ \ ./kernel/ -path "./include/asm-*" -prune -o \ -name "*.[chxsS]" -print
Mind the left and right quotes if you copy and paste that snippet. I haven’t yet fixed my CSS to be more code-friendly.
This set of parameters avoids scraping board files and platform data for ARM SoCs other than OMAP2/3. It explicitly includes the rest of the generic ARM code. If you have any suggestions for making this list more efficient with some -prune’ing or some negation statements then do chime in! Similarly I left out fs, net, init, mm, lib and ipc since I’m only doing architecture hacking or device driver work. Adjust per your own needs.
