The patch looks correct to me,

One minor comment on the patch: when you address a warning in a patch,
it helps to put the compiler warning output into the changelog.

Aside from that, I see that you are upstreaming a number of clang
related patches. I actually have a longer series of clang patches that
I took from llvmlinux and hacked up to the point where I could
build ARM randconfig kernels without any warnings or errors.
If you are interested, I can separate the clang patches from my normal
randconfig build tree and upload the git tree for you to look at and
cherry-pick further patches.
