Subject[PATCH 3.16 015/305] turn off -Wattribute-alias
3.16.63-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

Starting with gcc-8.1, we get a warning about all system call definitions,
which use an alias between functions with incompatible prototypes, e.g.:

In file included from ../mm/process_vm_access.c:19:
../include/linux/syscalls.h:211:18: warning: 'sys_process_vm_readv' alias between functions of incompatible types 'long int(pid_t, const struct iovec *, long unsigned int, const struct iovec *, long unsigned int, long unsigned int)' {aka 'long int(int, const struct iovec *, long unsigned int, const struct iovec *, long unsigned int, long unsigned int)'} and 'long int(long int, long int, long int, long int, long int, long int)' [-Wattribute-alias]
asmlinkage long sys##name(__MAP(x,__SC_DECL,__VA_ARGS__)) \
^~~
../include/linux/syscalls.h:207:2: note: in expansion of macro '__SYSCALL_DEFINEx'
__SYSCALL_DEFINEx(x, sname, __VA_ARGS__)
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
../include/linux/syscalls.h:201:36: note: in expansion of macro 'SYSCALL_DEFINEx'
#define SYSCALL_DEFINE6(name, ...) SYSCALL_DEFINEx(6, _##name, __VA_ARGS__)
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
../mm/process_vm_access.c:300:1: note: in expansion of macro 'SYSCALL_DEFINE6'
SYSCALL_DEFINE6(process_vm_readv, pid_t, pid, const struct iovec __user *, lvec,
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
../include/linux/syscalls.h:215:18: note: aliased declaration here
asmlinkage long SyS##name(__MAP(x,__SC_LONG,__VA_ARGS__)) \
^~~
../include/linux/syscalls.h:207:2: note: in expansion of macro '__SYSCALL_DEFINEx'
__SYSCALL_DEFINEx(x, sname, __VA_ARGS__)
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
../include/linux/syscalls.h:201:36: note: in expansion of macro 'SYSCALL_DEFINEx'
#define SYSCALL_DEFINE6(name, ...) SYSCALL_DEFINEx(6, _##name, __VA_ARGS__)
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
../mm/process_vm_access.c:300:1: note: in expansion of macro 'SYSCALL_DEFINE6'
SYSCALL_DEFINE6(process_vm_readv, pid_t, pid, const struct iovec __user *, lvec,

This is really noisy and does not indicate a real problem. In the latest
mainline kernel, this was addressed by commit bee20031772a ("disable
-Wattribute-alias warning for SYSCALL_DEFINEx()"), which seems too invasive
to backport.

This takes a much simpler approach and just disables the warning across the
kernel.
