Subject: [PATCH 3/8] x86: math-emu: avoid bogus -Wint-in-bool-context warning
Date: Wed, 19 Jul 2017 14:53:01 +0200
Message-ID: <20170719125310.2487451-4-arnd@arndb.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170719125310.2487451-1-arnd@arndb.de>

gcc-7.1.1 produces this warning:

arch/x86/math-emu/reg_add_sub.c: In function 'FPU_add':
arch/x86/math-emu/reg_add_sub.c:80:48: error: ?: using integer constants in boolean context [-Werror=int-in-bool-context]

This appears to be a bug in gcc-7.1.1, and I have reported it as
PR81484. The compiler suggests that code written as

	if (a & b ? c : d)

is usually incorrect and should have been

	if (a & (b ? c : d))

However, in this case, we correctly write

	if ((a & b) ? c : d)

and should not get a warning for it.

This adds a dirty workaround for the problem, adding a comparison with
zero inside of the macro. The warning is currently disabled in the kernel,
so we may decide not to apply the patch, and instead wait for future gcc
releases to fix the problem. On the other hand, it seems to be the
only instance of this particular problem.
