Subject[PATCH] Btrfs: qgroup: add BUILD_BUG to report pointer cast breakage
Date
Our ulist data structure stores at max 64bit
values. qgroup has used this structure to store
pointers. In the future when we upgrade to 128bit
this casting of pointers to uint64_t will break.

This patch adds a BUILD_BUG ensuring that this
code will not be left untouched in the upgrade.

It also marks this issue on the TODO list so it
may be addressed before such an upgrade.
