Subject: [PATCH] drm/i915: Clean up disabled warnings
Date: Tue, 24 Aug 2021 16:22:38 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

i915 enables a wider set of warnings with '-Wall -Wextra' then disables
several with cc-disable-warning. If an unknown flag gets added to
KBUILD_CFLAGS when building with clang, all subsequent calls to
cc-{disable-warning,option} will fail, meaning that all of these
warnings do not get disabled [1].

A separate series will address the root cause of the issue by not adding
these flags when building with clang [2]; however, the symptom of these
extra warnings appearing can be addressed separately by just removing
the calls to cc-disable-warning, which makes the build ever so slightly
faster because the compiler does not need to be called as much before

The following warnings are supported by GCC 4.9 and clang 10.0.1, which
are the minimum supported versions of these compilers so the call to
cc-disable-warning is not necessary. Masahiro cleaned this up for the
reset of the kernel in commit 4c8dd95a723d ("kbuild: add some extra
warning flags unconditionally").

* -Wmissing-field-initializers
* -Wsign-compare
* -Wtype-limits
* -Wunused-parameter

-Wunused-but-set-variable was implemented in clang 13.0.0 and
-Wframe-address was implemented in clang 12.0.0 so the
cc-disable-warning calls are kept for these two warnings.

Lastly, -Winitializer-overrides is clang's version of -Woverride-init,
which is disabled for the specific files that are problematic. clang
added a compatibility alias in clang 8.0.0 so -Winitializer-overrides
can be removed.

NOTE: This is based on my series to enable -Wsometimes-initialized here:

I sent it separately as this can go into whatever release but I would
like for that series to go into 5.15.
