Subject[PATCH 4.19 212/306] btrfs: avoid link error with CONFIG_NO_AUTO_INLINE
From: Arnd Bergmann <>

[ Upstream commit 7e17916b35797396f681a3270245fd29c1e4c250 ]

Note: this patch fixes a problem in a feature outside of btrfs ("kernel
hacking: add a config option to disable compiler auto-inlining") and is
applied ahead of time due to cross-subsystem dependencies.

On 32-bit ARM with gcc-8, I see a link error with the addition of the

fs/btrfs/super.o: In function `btrfs_statfs':
super.c:(.text+0x67b8): undefined reference to `__aeabi_uldivmod'
super.c:(.text+0x67fc): undefined reference to `__aeabi_uldivmod'
super.c:(.text+0x6858): undefined reference to `__aeabi_uldivmod'
super.c:(.text+0x6920): undefined reference to `__aeabi_uldivmod'
super.c:(.text+0x693c): undefined reference to `__aeabi_uldivmod'
fs/btrfs/super.o:super.c:(.text+0x6958): more undefined references to `__aeabi_uldivmod' follow

So far this is the only file that shows the behavior, so I'd propose
to just work around it by marking the functions as 'static inline'
that normally get inlined here.

The reference to __aeabi_uldivmod comes from a div_u64() which has an
optimization for a constant division that uses a straight '/' operator
when the result should be known to the compiler. My interpretation is
that as we turn off inlining, gcc still expects the result to be constant
but fails to use that constant value.
