Subject[PATCH] rtc: ds2404: use hw endiannes variable
Date
Converting from hardware to host endiannes was done using reassignment
to the same variable which makes sparse unhappy as it can not verify
the endiannes handling properly. To allow sparse to verify endiannes
handling an explicit __le32 is introduced. Note that this patch does
not change the generated binary (x86_64 and ppc64 binary diff).

Problem located by an experimental coccinelle script to locate
patters that make sparse unhappy (false positives):

on little-endian x86_64 sparse complains about:
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32
on big-endian ppc64 sparse complains about
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32
drivers/rtc/rtc-ds2404.c:187:16: warning: cast to restricted __le32

Patch was compiletested with:
x86_64_defconfig + RTC_DRV_DS2404=m
ppc64_defconfig + RTC_DRV_DS2404=m

in both cases applying the patch has no impact on the generated binary.

Patch is against 5.1 (localversion-next is next-20190508)
