I can see why this would warn, but I'm having trouble reproducing the
warning on linux-next.

If both work equally well, I'd prefer Sven's patch since that only
expands 'type'
once, while container_of() expands it three more times. This may not make
much of a difference, but I've seen a number of cases where nested macros
can explode the preprocessed code size enough to slow down kernel compilation
over all, and it's quite possible to have get_unaligned()/put_unaligned in
the middle of that, with a complex expression passed into that.
