Subject: [PATCH] objtool: Prevent GCC from merging annotate_unreachable(), take 2
Date: Fri, 3 Nov 2017 17:19:41 -0500
Message-ID: <20171103221941.cajpwszir7ujxyc4@treble> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20171103155027.yhypc4tydthaifss@treble>


This fixes the following warning with GCC 4.6:

  mm/migrate.o: warning: objtool: migrate_misplaced_transhuge_page()+0x71: unreachable instruction

The problem is that the compiler merged identical annotate_unreachable()
inline asm blocks, resulting in a missing 'unreachable' annotation.

This problem happened before, and was partially fixed with:

  3d1e236022cc ("objtool: Prevent GCC from merging annotate_unreachable()")

That commit tried to ensure that each instance of the
annotate_unreachable() inline asm statement has a unique label.  It used
the __LINE__ macro to generate the label number.  However, even the line
number isn't necessarily unique when used in an inline function with
multiple callers (in this case, __alloc_pages_node()'s use of
VM_BUG_ON).
