Subject: [PATCH v2] sched: fix "runnable_avg_yN_inv" not used warnings
Date: Mon,  3 Jun 2019 17:11:44 -0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)

runnable_avg_yN_inv[] is only used in kernel/sched/pelt.c but was
included in several other places because they need other macros all
came from kernel/sched/sched-pelt.h which was generated by
Documentation/scheduler/sched-pelt. As the result, it causes compilation
a lot of warnings,

In file included from kernel/sched/pelt.h:2,
                 from kernel/sched/rt.c:8:
kernel/sched/sched-pelt.h:4:18: warning: 'runnable_avg_yN_inv' defined
but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=]
In file included from kernel/sched/pelt.h:2,
                 from kernel/sched/fair.c:705:
kernel/sched/sched-pelt.h:4:18: warning: 'runnable_avg_yN_inv' defined
but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=]
In file included from kernel/sched/pelt.h:2,
                 from kernel/sched/deadline.c:19:
kernel/sched/sched-pelt.h:4:18: warning: 'runnable_avg_yN_inv' defined
but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=]

Silence it by appending the __maybe_unused attribute for it, so all
generated variables and macros can still be kept in the same file.

Signed-off-by: Qian Cai <>

v2: add a comment for __maybe_unused.
