Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the akpm-current tree
Hi Andrew,

After merging the akpm-current tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

In file included from include/linux/kernel.h:15:0,
from include/linux/list.h:9,
from mm/hugetlb.c:5:
mm/hugetlb.c: In function 'hugetlb_reserve_pages':
include/linux/build_bug.h:36:33: error: void value not ignored as it ought to be
#define BUILD_BUG_ON_INVALID(e) ((void)(sizeof((__force long)(e))))
include/linux/mmdebug.h:52:34: note: in expansion of macro 'BUILD_BUG_ON_INVALID'
#define VM_WARN(cond, format...) BUILD_BUG_ON_INVALID(cond)

if (VM_WARN(from > to, "%s called with a negative range\n", __func__))
scripts/ recipe for target 'mm/hugetlb.o' failed

Caused by commit
