Subject: older gccs and case labels producing integer constants
Date: Tue, 5 Apr 2022 11:50:35 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <YkwQ6+tIH8GQpuct@zn.tnic> (raw)

Hi folks,

I'm starting to see failures like this on allmodconfig builds:

sound/usb/midi.c: In function ‘snd_usbmidi_out_endpoint_create’:
sound/usb/midi.c:1389:2: error: case label does not reduce to an integer constant
  case (((0xfc08) << 16) | (0x0101)):
  ^~~~

(The case statement is a macro but it evaluates to what I have there)

and that thing fails with

$ gcc --version
gcc (SUSE Linux) 7.5.0

although it doesn't have any problems building with newer compilers.

I'm presuming older gccs consider those case statements signed ints and
the following fixes it:

  case ((((unsigned int)0xfc08) << 16) | (0x0101)):

and I guess we can whack the couple of occurrences but what I'm
wondering is why does this work with newer gccs?

Thx.

    Boris.
