SubjectRe: [PATCH] modpost: allow modpost to fail on warnings

Sorry, I am not able to understand your recommendation. Existing code
which calls merror() does not exit with an error code, e.g.

static void sym_update_namespace(const char *symname, const char *namespace)
struct symbol *s = find_symbol(symname);

* That symbol should have been created earlier and thus this is
* actually an assertion.
if (!s) {
merror("Could not update namespace(%s) for symbol %s\n",
namespace, symname);

What would be suggestion be then in this case?

change all functions to return -EINVAL after each use of merror() or

Or just add an exit(1) after all uses of merror()?

That was the point of the suggested option, treat all warnings as errors
and ignore the warning if it's no big deal. it's standard with gcc
-Werror, it's be good to extend this to modpost - or what would be the
drawback of doing so?
