It seems that this is due to this guy:

static __always_inline int trylock_clear_pending(struct qspinlock *lock)
{
struct __qspinlock *l = (void *)lock;

return !READ_ONCE(l->locked) &&
(cmpxchg_acquire(&l->locked_pending, _Q_PENDING_VAL,
_Q_LOCKED_VAL) == _Q_PENDING_VAL);
}

_Q_PENDING_VAL is 0x100. However, locked_pending is 2 bytes. So it
seems that compiler checks all switch cases, this inevitably will lead
to such warnings.

Any suggestion on how to resolve this? Leave as is?

Off the top of my head I can think of the following solution:

switch (size) {
case 1:
return arch_cmpxchg((u8 *)ptr, (u8)(old * (size !=
1)), (u8)(new * (size != 1)));
case 2:
return arch_cmpxchg((u16 *)ptr, (u16)(old * (size !=
2)), (u16)(new * (size != 2)));

But it's too ugly.


FTR, the following was helpful to find invocations with particular size:

#define cmpxchg(ptr, old, new) \
({ \
+ BUILD_BUG_ON(sizeof(*(ptr)) == 1); \
((__typeof__(*(ptr)))cmpxchg_size((ptr), (unsigned long)(old), \
(unsigned long)(new), sizeof(*(ptr)))); \
})
