Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 068/127] tracing: Use address-of operator on section symbols
Date
From: Nathan Chancellor <natechancellor@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit bf2cbe044da275021b2de5917240411a19e5c50d ]

Clang warns:

../kernel/trace/trace.c:9335:33: warning: array comparison always
evaluates to true [-Wtautological-compare]
if (__stop___trace_bprintk_fmt != __start___trace_bprintk_fmt)
^
1 warning generated.

These are not true arrays, they are linker defined symbols, which are
just addresses. Using the address of operator silences the warning and
does not change the runtime result of the check (tested with some print
statements compiled in with clang + ld.lld and gcc + ld.bfd in QEMU).
