I responded on the other thread, but let me share the response here:

[to muriloo@linux.ibm.com]
Apologies for the delay in responding, broken laptop…

In the case where CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK is not defined, we have:

	typedef struct cpumask cpumask_var_t[1];

So that vp_dev->msix_affinity_masks[i] is statically not null (that’s the warning)
but also a static pointer, so not kfree-safe IMO.
