Subject[PATCH 4.9 179/223] iio: iio-utils: Fix possible incorrect mask calculation
Date
[ Upstream commit 208a68c8393d6041a90862992222f3d7943d44d6 ]

On some machines, iio-sensor-proxy was returning all 0's for IIO sensor
values. It turns out that the bits_used for this sensor is 32, which makes
the mask calculation:

*mask = (1 << 32) - 1;

If the compiler interprets the 1 literals as 32-bit ints, it generates
undefined behavior depending on compiler version and optimization level.
On my system, it optimizes out the shift, so the mask value becomes

*mask = (1) - 1;

With a mask value of 0, iio-sensor-proxy will always return 0 for every axis.

Avoid incorrect 0 values caused by compiler optimization.

See original fix by Brett Dutro <brett.dutro@gmail.com> in
iio-sensor-proxy:
