Subjectftrace breaks sparc64 build
With an allmodconfig build on sparc and sparc64 I started
to see warnings that become propagated to errors by -Werror.

Example:
CC arch/sparc/kernel/ldc.o
arch/sparc/kernel/ldc.c: In function `process_control_frame':
arch/sparc/kernel/ldc.c:627: warning: 'vap' might be used uninitialized in this function


The code in question looks like this:
static int process_ver_nack(struct ldc_channel *lp, struct ldc_version *vp)
{
struct ldc_version *vap;

if ((vp->major == 0 && vp->minor == 0) ||
!(vap = find_by_major(vp->major))) {
return ldc_abort(lp);
} else {
struct ldc_packet *p;
unsigned long new_tail;

p = handshake_compose_ctrl(lp, LDC_INFO, LDC_VERS,
vap, sizeof(*vap),
&new_tail);
if (p)
return send_tx_packet(lp, p, new_tail);
else
return ldc_abort(lp);
}
}

The else part will never be executed whitout assigning vap,
and this code do not emit warnings in the normal case.
[I am well aware that we recommend to move the assignment
out of the if () - but this code worked as is before].

This code gets expanded to:

static int process_ver_nack(struct ldc_channel *lp, struct ldc_version *vp)
{
struct ldc_version *vap;

if (__builtin_constant_p(((vp->major == 0 && vp->minor == 0) || !(vap = find_by_major(vp->major)))) ?
!!((vp->major == 0 && vp->minor == 0) || !(vap = find_by_major(vp->major))) :
({
int ______r;
static struct ftrace_branch_data ______f = { .func = __func__, .file = "arch/sparc/kernel/ldc.c", .line = 630, };
______r = !!((vp->major == 0 && vp->minor == 0) || !(vap = find_by_major(vp->major)));
if (______r)
______f.hit++;
else
______f.miss++; ______r;
})) {

return ldc_abort(lp);
} else {
struct ldc_packet *p;
unsigned long new_tail;

p = handshake_compose_ctrl(lp, 0x01, 0x01, vap, sizeof(*vap), &new_tail);
if (__builtin_constant_p((p)) ? !!(p) : ({
int ______r;
static struct ftrace_branch_data ______f = { .func = __func__, .file = "arch/sparc/kernel/ldc.c", .line = 639, };
______r = !!(p);
if (______r)
______f.hit++;
else ______f.miss++;
______r;
}))
return send_tx_packet(lp, p, new_tail);
else
return ldc_abort(lp);
}
}
I have inserted newlines + tabs and removed a few __attribute__()
to keep line lengths to a sensible level.

My head started to spin with a dangerous speed trying to figure out
the code snippet above.

On top of this some inlining occurs which is why gcc point at another
function name.


This is with following gcc version:

sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc (GCC) 3.4.5
Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

Build using crosstool.

Is this a known issue?

Any recommendations?

Sam
