Subject[PATCH] mm: Fix BUILD_BUG assertion in pmdp_clear_flush_young()
From: David Daney <>

It has been reported that when building for sh:

mm/pgtable-generic.c: In function 'pmdp_clear_flush_young':
mm/pgtable-generic.c:76: error: call to '__build_bug_failed' declared with attribute error: BUILD_BUG failed

Adding some ugle #ifdeffery will probably fix this issue.

Signed-off-by: David Daney <>
This is completely untested, but may be the best fix for this. Linus
and others have expressed a dislike for using BUG() to detect what
should be dead code paths at runtime, but it seems to be the state of
the art here.
