Right, this is more mysterious than I thought. I see now that the original
patch 124a3d88fa20 ("Disable "frame-address" warning") was backported
into 3.18, just not the revert 377ccbb48373 ("Makefile: Mute warning for
__builtin_return_address(>0) for tracing only") and the subsequent
revert^2 ef6000b4c670 ("Disable the __builtin_return_address() warning
globally after all").

I have checked that on my build box, the warning is successfully
disabled with gcc-6 and higher (tried 6.1.1, 6.3.1, 7.0.0, 7.1.1)
and older compilers have neither the warning nor the option
to disable it.
I also tried reproducing the warning on arm and aarch64 with some
other modifications but I get a different warning there:

kernel/sched/core.c: In function 'preempt_count_sub':
include/linux/ftrace.h:632:36: warning: unsupported argument to
'__builtin_return_address'

Greg and Mark, which x86-64 compiler versions do you use?

Arnd
