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

I found two possible fixes.

1. This uses C++ zero initializer, GCC is OK with it.
I tested with GCC 4.9.3 (has the initialization bug) and GCC 6.4.0.

- return (pmd_t){ 0 };
+ return (pmd_t){};
}

static inline int is_pmd_migration_entry(pmd_t pmd)

2. This is ugly but working.
It works with GCC 4.9.3 and GCC 6.4.0.
