Subject[PATCH 4.9 62/63] sched/sysctl: Fix attributes of some extern declarations
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Matthias Kaehlcke <mka@chromium.org>

commit a9903f04e0a4ea522d959c2f287cdf0ab029e324 upstream.

The definition of sysctl_sched_migration_cost, sysctl_sched_nr_migrate
and sysctl_sched_time_avg includes the attribute const_debug. This
attribute is not part of the extern declaration of these variables in
include/linux/sched/sysctl.h, while it is in kernel/sched/sched.h,
and as a result Clang generates warnings like this:

kernel/sched/sched.h:1618:33: warning: section attribute is specified on redeclared variable [-Wsection]
extern const_debug unsigned int sysctl_sched_time_avg;
^
./include/linux/sched/sysctl.h:42:21: note: previous declaration is here
extern unsigned int sysctl_sched_time_avg;

The header only declares the variables when CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG is defined,
therefore it is not necessary to duplicate the definition of const_debug.
Instead we can use the attribute __read_mostly, which is the expansion of
const_debug when CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG=y is set.
