Subjectlinux-next: build failure
Hi Ingo,

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

ERROR: "__BUILD_BUG_ON_non_constant" [drivers/net/sunvnet.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "__BUILD_BUG_ON_non_constant" [drivers/block/sunvdc.ko] undefined!

Probably intorduced by commit f5b5d41dd51a31fe70e3a04fb80a3b90b84c6a4e
("debug: fix BUILD_BUG_ON() for non-constant expressions").

The preprocessed code looks like this:

static inline __attribute__((always_inline)) u32 vio_dring_avail(struct vio_dring_state *dr,
unsigned int ring_size)
{
do { (void)sizeof(char[1 - 2*!!(!is_power_of_2(ring_size))]); if (!__builtin_constant_p(!is_power_of_2(ring_size))) __BUILD_BUG_ON_non_constant++; } while (0);

return (dr->pending -
((dr->prod - dr->cons) & (ring_size - 1)));
}

I tried turning the above inline function into a macro to no avail.

I applied the following patch (which is probably not what is wanted, but
puts back what was there before).

I see from LKML that this definition of BUILD_BUG_ON is to be replaced,
so this is just a temporary measure.
