On x86_64 defconfig this gets me:

kernel/sched/core.c: In function 'sched_init_numa':
kernel/sched/core.c:6197:4: warning: initialization makes pointer from integer without a cast [enabled by default]
kernel/sched/core.c:6197:4: warning: (near initialization for '(anonymous).sd_flags') [enabled by default]
