Subject: [PATCH v4] seq_file: fix clang warning for NULL pointer arithmetic
Date: Wed, 28 Oct 2020 16:11:36 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201028151202.3074398-1-arnd@kernel.org> (raw)

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

Clang points out that adding something to NULL is not allowed in
standard C:

fs/kernfs/file.c:127:15: warning: performing pointer arithmetic on a
null pointer has undefined behavior [-Wnull-pointer-arithmetic]
                return NULL + !*ppos;
                       ~~~~ ^
fs/seq_file.c:529:14: warning: performing pointer arithmetic on a
null pointer has undefined behavior [-Wnull-pointer-arithmetic]
        return NULL + (*pos == 0);

Rephrase the code to be extra explicit about the valid, giving them
named SEQ_OPEN_EOF and SEQ_OPEN_SINGLE definitions.  The instance in
kernfs was copied from single_start, so fix both at once.

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
Fixes: c2b19daf6760 ("sysfs, kernfs: prepare read path for kernfs")

v2: add the named macros after Christoph Hellwig pointed out
    that my original logic was too ugly.

v3: don't overload the NULL return, avoid ?: operator

v4: fix changelog text (Nathan Chancellor), add comment (Christoph
    Hellwig)
