Subjectlinux-next: build failure
Hi Dave,

Today's linux-next build (sparc64 defconfig) failed like this:

kernel/time/tick-common.c: In function `tick_check_new_device':
kernel/time/tick-common.c:210: error: invalid lvalue in unary `&'
kernel/time/tick-common.c:223: error: invalid lvalue in unary `&'
kernel/time/tick-common.c:255: error: invalid lvalue in unary `&'

gcc is version 3.4.5 sparc64 cross compiler (powercp64 host).

The below patch fixes it.

Subject: [PATCH] cpumask: statement expressions confuse some versions of gcc

when you take the address of the result. Noticed on a sparc64 compile
using a version 3.4.5 cross compiler.

kernel/time/tick-common.c: In function `tick_check_new_device':
kernel/time/tick-common.c:210: error: invalid lvalue in unary `&'
kernel/time/tick-common.c:223: error: invalid lvalue in unary `&'
kernel/time/tick-common.c:255: error: invalid lvalue in unary `&'
