SubjectRe: linux-next: build failure after merge of the akpm-current tree
Date
Hi Stephen,

The warning after removing __pmd() is caused by a gcc bug: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=53119
so (pmd_t) {0} causes warning in some GCC versions.

__pmd() is defined in alpha, arm, arm64, frv, ia64, m32r, m68k, microblaze, mips, parisc,
powerpc, s390, sh, sparc, tile, um, x86, and asm-generic, according to
http://elixir.free-electrons.com/linux/latest/ident/__pmd

I am not sure about whether arc, blackfin, c6x, cris, h8300, hexagon, metag, mn10300, nios2, score,
xtensa use __pmd() in asm-generic or not.

I am looking for other workarounds for this warning now.



Best Regards,
Yan Zi
