Subject[PATCH 3.18 026/145] ARM: 8584/1: floppy: avoid gcc-6 warning
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Arnd Bergmann <>

commit dd665be0e243873343a28e18f9f345927b658daf upstream.

gcc-6.0 warns about comparisons between two identical expressions,
which is what we get in the floppy driver when writing to the FD_DOR

drivers/block/floppy.c: In function 'set_dor':
drivers/block/floppy.c:810:44: error: self-comparison always evaluates to true [-Werror=tautological-compare]
fd_outb(newdor, FD_DOR);

It would be nice to use a static inline function instead of the
macro, to avoid the warning, but we cannot do that because the
FD_DOR definition is incomplete at this point.

Adding a cast to (u32) is a harmless way to shut up the warning,
just not very nice.
