Subject: [PATCH] slab: work around clang bug #42570
Date: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 11:04:39 +0200
Message-ID: <20190712090455.266021-1-arnd@arndb.de> (raw)

Clang gets rather confused about two variables in the same special
section when one of them is not initialized, leading to an assembler
warning later:

/tmp/slab_common-18f869.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/slab_common-18f869.s:7526: Warning: ignoring changed section attributes for .data..ro_after_init

Adding an initialization to kmalloc_caches is rather silly here
but does avoid the issue.

We might decide to wait until this is fixed in clang, but
so far all versions targetting x86 seem to be affected.
