Subject[PATCH 1/1] asm-generic: delay.h fix udelay and ndelay for 8 bit args
Date

From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>

With a non-constant 8-bit argument, a call to udelay() generates a warning:

drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/atom.c: In function 'atom_op_delay':
drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/atom.c:654: warning: comparison is always false due to limited range of data type

The code looks like it works OK with an 8-bit arg, and the calling code is
doing nothing wrong, so udelay() needs fixing.

Fixing it was rather tricky. Simply typecasting `n' in the comparison with
20000 didn't change anything. Hence the divide-by-20000 trick.
Using a do{}while loop didn't work because udelay() is used in ?: statements,
hence the ({...}) construct.
While I was there I replaced the brain-bending ?:?:?: mess with nice if/else
code.

Probably other architectures are generating the same warning and can use a
similar change.

Here's a patch that should resolve the merge conflict. This applies
Andrew's changes on top of the new asm-generic/delay.h instead of the x86
arch-specific one. I've tested this for OpenRISC and the changed macros
don't cause any problems there.

Let me know if this is OK and I'll throw it into the OpenRISC tree together
with the other delay.h modifications.

Thanks,
Jonas
