I'm getting a different warning:

drivers/hwmon/smsc47m1.o: warning: objtool: fan_div_store()+0xb6: can't find jump dest instruction at .text+0x93a

But I bet the root cause is the same.

This fixes it for me:

Subject: [PATCH] hwmon/smsc47m1: Fix objtool warning caused by undefined behavior

Objtool is reporting the following warning:

drivers/hwmon/smsc47m1.o: warning: objtool: fan_div_store()+0xb6: can't find jump dest instruction at .text+0x93a

It's apparently caused by

2cf6745e69d1 ("hwmon: (smsc47m1) fix (suspicious) outside array bounds warnings")

which is somehow convincing GCC to add a jump past the end of the
function:

793: 45 85 ed test %r13d,%r13d
796: 0f 88 9e 01 00 00 js 93a <fan_div_store+0x25a>
...
930: e9 5e fe ff ff jmpq 793 <fan_div_store+0xb3>
935: e8 00 00 00 00 callq 93a <fan_div_store+0x25a>
936: R_X86_64_PLT32 __stack_chk_fail-0x4
<function end>

I suppose this falls under the category of undefined behavior, so we
probably can't call it a GCC bug. But if the value of "nr" were out of
range somehow then it would start executing random code. Use a runtime
BUG() assertion to avoid undefined behavior.
