I no longer see any of the "can't find switch jump table" in last
nights randconfig
builds. I do see one other rare warning, see attached object file:

fs/reiserfs/do_balan.o: warning: objtool: replace_key()+0x158: stack
state mismatch: cfa1=7+40 cfa2=7+56
fs/reiserfs/do_balan.o: warning: objtool: balance_leaf()+0x2791: stack
state mismatch: cfa1=7+176 cfa2=7+192
fs/reiserfs/ibalance.o: warning: objtool: balance_internal()+0xe8f:
stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+240 cfa2=7+248
fs/reiserfs/ibalance.o: warning: objtool:
internal_move_pointers_items()+0x36f: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+152
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.o: warning: objtool:
leaf_cut_from_buffer()+0x58b: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+128
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.o: warning: objtool:
leaf_copy_boundary_item()+0x7a9: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+104
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.o: warning: objtool:
leaf_copy_items_entirely()+0x3d2: stack state mismatch: cfa1=7+120

I suspect this comes from the calls to the __reiserfs_panic() noreturn function,
but have not actually looked at the object file.
