SubjectRe: [PATCH 7/8] percpu: add __percpu sparse annotations to hw_breakpoint
Hello,

Yeap, the definition looks like

#define SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(__p, __offset) ({ \
__verify_pcpu_ptr((__p)); \
RELOC_HIDE((typeof(*(__p)) __kernel __force *)(__p), (__offset)); \
})
#define per_cpu(var, cpu) \
(*SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR(&(var), per_cpu_offset(cpu)))

but it just ends up putting the __force at the wrong layer. It seems
that (typeof(var) __kernel __force) tell sparse var is in the kernel
address space but not its members.

Sorry I forgot to write about this. It's in the percpu tree.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/percpu.git for-next

The related commits are 545695fb41da117928ab946067a42d9e15fd009d and

Thanks.
