Subject: [PATCH 4.9 16/34] MIPS: bmips: mark exception vectors as char arrays
Date: Fri,  8 Nov 2019 19:50:23 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

[ Upstream commit e4f5cb1a9b27c0f94ef4f5a0178a3fde2d3d0e9e ]

The vectors span more than one byte, so mark them as arrays.

Fixes the following build error when building when using GCC 8.3:
