Subject: [PATCH] backports: suppress attribute((cold)) warnings with gcc 9
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 10:32:21 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Johannes Berg <>

Since my last system upgrade I started building with gcc 9,
and that complains that a function is cold when the one we
create locally here isn't - mark it as cold always, I don't
think it would complain the other way around.
