Subject[PATCH 4.4 19/72] cpumask: Add helper cpumask_available()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Matthias Kaehlcke <mka@chromium.org>

commit f7e30f01a9e221067bb4b579e3cfc25cd2617467 upstream.

With CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y cpumask_var_t is a struct cpumask
pointer, otherwise a struct cpumask array with a single element.

Some code dealing with cpumasks needs to validate that a cpumask_var_t
is not a NULL pointer when CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y. This is typically
done by performing the check always, regardless of the underlying type
of cpumask_var_t. This works in both cases, however clang raises a
warning like this when CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=n:

kernel/irq/manage.c:839:28: error: address of array
'desc->irq_common_data.affinity' will always evaluate to 'true'
[-Werror,-Wpointer-bool-conversion]

Add the inline helper cpumask_available() which only performs the
pointer check if CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y.
