I do like this one better than the former.

Normally, I would agree but I am currently planning to leave
-Wtautological-constant-out-of-range-compare disabled when I turn on
-Wtautological-compare for the whole kernel because there are plenty of
locations in the kernel where these kind of checks depend on various
kernel configuration options and the general attitude of kernel
developers is that this particular warning is not really helpful
for that reason.

I'll see if there is a general consensus before moving further since I
know i915 turns on a bunch of extra warnings from the rest of the kernel
(hence why we are in this situation).

Cheers,
Nathan
