I don't understand this commit at all. CFI is Control Flow Integrity
or Common Flash Interface depending on which subsystem we're talking
about.

I really think that Clang needs to be fixed if this really causes an
issue for Clang. How on earth are we going to know where to add all
the casts?

The commit message says "this might cause a CFI" failure. Either it
does or it doesn't. Please someone test this so we can know what's
going on.

Why is it backported to 5.15? I thought CFI was not going to backported
that far and I has seen people complaining about CFI backports.

regards,
dan carpenter
