gcc output:

kernel/trace/ring_buffer.c: In function 'ring_buffer_resize':
kernel/trace/ring_buffer.c:1884:4: warning: this 'if' clause does not guard... [-Wmisleading-indentation]
if (!update_if_isolated(cpu_buffer, cpu_id))
^~
kernel/trace/ring_buffer.c:1887:5: note: ...this statement, but the latter is misleadingly indented as if it were guarded by the 'if'
wait_for_completion(&cpu_buffer->update_done);

My fix:
