Subject: [PATCH 09/11] UAPI: ndctl: Fix g++-unsupported initialisation in headers [ver #2]
Date: Thu, 06 Sep 2018 10:19:24 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <153622556444.14298.5971956747198405225.stgit@warthog.procyon.org.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <153622549721.14298.8116794954073122489.stgit@warthog.procyon.org.uk>

The following code in the linux/ndctl header file:

	static inline const char *nvdimm_bus_cmd_name(unsigned cmd)
	{
		static const char * const names[] = {
			[ND_CMD_ARS_CAP] = "ars_cap",
			[ND_CMD_ARS_START] = "ars_start",
			[ND_CMD_ARS_STATUS] = "ars_status",
			[ND_CMD_CLEAR_ERROR] = "clear_error",
			[ND_CMD_CALL] = "cmd_call",
		};

		if (cmd < ARRAY_SIZE(names) && names[cmd])
			return names[cmd];
		return "unknown";
	}

is broken in a number of ways:

 (1) ARRAY_SIZE() is not generally defined.

 (2) g++ does not support "non-trivial" array initialisers fully yet.

 (3) Every file that calls this function will acquire a copy of names[].

The same goes for nvdimm_cmd_name().

Fix all three by converting to a switch statement where each case returns a
string.  That way if cmd is a constant, the compiler can trivially reduce it
and, if not, the compiler can use a shared lookup table if it thinks that is
more efficient.

A better way would be to remove these functions and their arrays from the
header entirely.
