Hi all,

After merging the net-next tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
ppc64_defconfig) produced this warning:

Introduced by commit

  316580b69d0a ("u64_stats: provide u64_stats_t type")

Powerpc folks: is there some reason that local_read() cannot take a
const argument?

I have added this patch (which builds fine) for today:
