Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 01/27 v10] xen/arm: vpl011: Define common ring buffer helper functions in console.h

Hi Jan,

Yes, after including the __STRICT_ANSI__ check the headers.chk check
passes. But I had to include string header file (after suggestion from Stefano)
for fixing the headers++.chk.

I have pasted the changes below:
