SubjectRe: make sure swap arguments are the same type? (was: Re: [PATCH] crypto: rmd320 - use swap macro in rmd320_transform)
From
Date
Hi Joe,

I like the idea. I'll take a look at the cases you mention and see
if I can make them work with your version of swap.

BTW, I wonder if it would be more convenient to trigger a build warning
instead of an error.

What do you think?

Thanks
