That's completely bogus.

First of all, arch/sparc/kernel/vio.c never calls this function
so it should never be evaluated.

Second of all, all the places that do call this function only
pass pure constants as the 'ring_size' parameter.

drivers/block/sunvdc.c:

static inline u32 vdc_tx_dring_avail(struct vio_dring_state *dr)
{
return vio_dring_avail(dr, VDC_TX_RING_SIZE);
}
drivers/net/sunvnet.c:

static inline u32 vnet_tx_dring_avail(struct vio_dring_state *dr)
{
return vio_dring_avail(dr, VNET_TX_RING_SIZE);
}
Making this MAYBE_BUILD_BUG_ON shouldn't be necessary.
