Subject: [PATCH] ftrace: let ftrace_enable_sysctl take a kernel pointer buffer
Date: Mon,  7 Sep 2020 11:32:07 +0200
Message-ID: <20200907093207.13540-1-tklauser@distanz.ch> (raw)

Commit 32927393dc1c ("sysctl: pass kernel pointers to ->proc_handler")
changed ctl_table.proc_handler to take a kernel pointer. Adjust the
signature of ftrace_enable_sysctl to match ctl_table.proc_handler which
fixes the following sparse warning:

kernel/trace/ftrace.c:7544:43: warning: incorrect type in argument 3 (different address spaces)
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:7544:43:    expected void *
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:7544:43:    got void [noderef] __user *buffer

Fixes: 32927393dc1c ("sysctl: pass kernel pointers to ->proc_handler")
