SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] arch/powerpc: Rework local_paca to avoid LTO warnings

Isn't this a bogus warning? It doesn't look like there's a way to
define it any other way.

Problem is it now changes the global register variable to a local
register variable. The compiler would presumably be within its rights
to "cache" that return value or use another register for it, which
is not really what we want.

Thanks,
