Subject[PATCH 4.14 26/54] x86/oprofile: Fix bogus GCC-8 warning in nmi_setup()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

commit 85c615eb52222bc5fab6c7190d146bc59fac289e upstream.

GCC-8 shows a warning for the x86 oprofile code that copies per-CPU
data from CPU 0 to all other CPUs, which when building a non-SMP
kernel turns into a memcpy() with identical source and destination
pointers:

arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c: In function 'mux_clone':
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c:285:2: error: 'memcpy' source argument is the same as destination [-Werror=restrict]
memcpy(per_cpu(cpu_msrs, cpu).multiplex,
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
per_cpu(cpu_msrs, 0).multiplex,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
sizeof(struct op_msr) * model->num_virt_counters);
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c: In function 'nmi_setup':
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c:466:3: error: 'memcpy' source argument is the same as destination [-Werror=restrict]
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c:470:3: error: 'memcpy' source argument is the same as destination [-Werror=restrict]

I have analyzed a number of such warnings now: some are valid and the
GCC warning is welcome. Others turned out to be false-positives, and
GCC was changed to not warn about those any more. This is a corner case
that is a false-positive but the GCC developers feel it's better to keep
warning about it.

In this case, it seems best to work around it by telling GCC
a little more clearly that this code path is never hit with
an IS_ENABLED() configuration check.

Cc:stable as we also want old kernels to build cleanly with GCC-8.
