SubjectCommit fcd8843c40 breaks old compilers
Date
Commit fcd8843c406b46433857ae45e5e9d84b01a7d20b breaks on older
compilers which cannot process initializers for anonymous structures:

+const nfs4_stateid invalid_stateid = {
+ {
+ .seqid = cpu_to_be32(0xffffffffU),
+ .other = { 0 },
+ },
+ .type = NFS4_INVALID_STATEID_TYPE,
+};


/home/build/linux-linus/fs/nfs/nfs4state.c:74: error: unknown field
‘seqid’ specified in initializer
/home/build/linux-linus/fs/nfs/nfs4state.c:74: warning: missing braces
around initializer
/home/build/linux-linus/fs/nfs/nfs4state.c:74: warning: (near
initialization for ‘invalid_stateid.<anonymous>.data’)

FC-64 <build@build-mk2:~> gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.4.4 20100503 (Red Hat 4.4.4-2)


A similar bug was fixed by e0714ec4f9efe7b86828b0dcc077fd8f5d8e5e91 but
I don't think the same approach can work here.
