Subject: [PATCH] x86/boot: Correctly deeclare error() as noreturn
Date: Fri, 5 May 2017 21:51:16 -0700
Message-ID: <20170506045116.GA2879@beast> (raw)

The compressed boot function error() is used to halt execution, but it
wasn't marked with "noreturn". This fixes that in preparation for
supporting kernel FORTIFY_SOURCE, which uses the noreturn annotation
on panic, and calls error(). GCC would warn about a noreturn function
calling a non-noreturn function:

arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.c: In function ‘fortify_panic’:
arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.c:416:1: warning: ‘noreturn’ function does return
 }
 ^
