Subject[PATCH 5.3 058/344] media: vivid: work around high stack usage with clang
From: Arnd Bergmann <>

[ Upstream commit 1a03f91c2c2419c3709c4554952c66695575e91c ]

Building a KASAN-enabled kernel with clang ends up in a case where too
much is inlined into vivid_thread_vid_cap() and the stack usage grows
a lot, possibly when the register allocation fails to produce efficient
code and spills a lot of temporaries to the stack. This uses more
than twice the amount of stack than the sum of the individual functions
when they are not inlined:

drivers/media/platform/vivid/vivid-kthread-cap.c:766:12: error: stack frame size of 2208 bytes in function 'vivid_thread_vid_cap' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]

Marking two of the key functions in here as 'noinline_for_stack' avoids
the pathological case in clang without any apparent downside for gcc.
