Sorry about this.

Is seems any arch without its own __set_fixmap may be adversely

I can't easily stub __set_fixmap as it's not implemented as a macro.

I think we can stick with a macro and remove 'addr', by returning the
result of the expression directly. As fix_to_virt gave us an unsigned
long I think the types should line up (i.e. the result will be at least
unsigned long wide).

Arnd, would you be happy with the below patch instead?

It builds fine for arm, arm64, mips, and tilegx in local testing.

Subject: [PATCH] asm-generic: Avoid variable in __set_fixmap_offset

Currently __set_fixmap_offset is a macro function which has a local
variable called 'addr'. If a caller passes a 'phys' parameter which is
derived from a variable also called 'addr', the local variable will
shadow this, and the compiler will complain about the use of an
uninitialized variable.

It is likely that fixmap users may use the name 'addr' for variables
that may be directly passed to __set_fixmap_offset, or that may be
indirectly generated via other macros. Rather than placing the burden on
callers to avoid the name 'addr', this patch removes the temporary
'addr' variable in __set_fixmap_offset, directly returning the result of
the address calculation.
