That warning doesn't appear to be enabled.  What config are you seeing
this with?

I'm also not clear on why this was assigned to me in patchwork.

I'm used to adding EXTRA_CFLAGS=-Wextra  when checking my own drivers, 
as it helps finding additional bugs.

When doing that, the only warnings I get outside of my own code are this 
one, and the other one in my proposed patch identified "powerpc32: fix 
warning from include/asm-generic/termios-base.h"

I though it would be worth fixing those two warnings in order to get a 
perfectly clean code.

It also produces a lot of noise, which is why Linux doesn't enable it.
E.g. it enables useless "unused parameter" warnings all over the place.

In general I don't think we should clutter up the code with suppression
for warnings we don't enable, but in this case we do end up with a value
that would be negative if considered as signed.  Instead of changing
VMALLOC_OFFSET, though, I'd address it where the problem is actually
introduced -- which is casting high_memory to (long) rather than
(unsigned long) or (uintptr_t).

Because it's from Christophe.

cheers
