Subject: [PATCH] x86: Do not force removal of __user when calling copy_to/from_user_nocheck()
Date: Fri, 3 Jan 2014 16:45:00 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20140103164500.5f6478f5@gandalf.local.home> (raw)


Commit ff47ab4ff3cdd "x86: Add 1/2/4/8 byte optimization to 64bit
__copy_{from,to}_user_inatomic" added a "_nocheck" call in between
the copy_to/from_user() and copy_user_generic(). As both the
normal and nocheck versions of theses calls use the proper __user
annotation, a typecast to remove it should not be added.
This causes sparse to spin out the following warnings:
