Subject[ 80/85] PARISC: Redefine ATOMIC_INIT and ATOMIC64_INIT to drop the casts
From: Greg KH <>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mel Gorman <>

commit bba3d8c3b3c0f2123be5bc687d1cddc13437c923 upstream.

The following build error occured during a parisc build with
swap-over-NFS patches applied.

net/core/sock.c:274:36: error: initializer element is not constant
net/core/sock.c:274:36: error: (near initialization for 'memalloc_socks')
net/core/sock.c:274:36: error: initializer element is not constant

Dave Anglin says:
> Here is the line in sock.i:
> struct static_key memalloc_socks = ((struct static_key) { .enabled =
> ((atomic_t) { (0) }) });

The above line contains two compound literals. It also uses a designated
initializer to initialize the field enabled. A compound literal is not a
constant expression.

The location of the above statement isn't fully clear, but if a compound
literal occurs outside the body of a function, the initializer list must
consist of constant expressions.
