It isn't required, but all callers of ipa_aggr_granularity_val()
pass a constant value (IPA_AGGR_GRANULARITY) as the usec argument.
Two of those callers are in ipa_validate_build(), with the result
being passed to BUILD_BUG_ON().

Evidently the "sparc64-linux-gcc" compiler (at least) doesn't always
inline ipa_aggr_granularity_val(), so the result of the function is
not constant at compile time, and that leads to build errors.

Define the function with the __always_inline attribute to avoid the
errors.  And given that the function is inline, we can switch the
WARN_ON() there to be BUILD_BUG_ON().

Fixes: 5bc5588466a1f ("net: ipa: use WARN_ON() rather than assertions")

David/Jakub, this fixes a bug in a commit in net-next/master.  -Alex

So what exactly are you checking here if all callers pass same value?
It is in-kernel API, declared as static inside one module. There is no
need to protect from itself.

Thanks

Yeah that's a good point.  It can just as well be removed.
I think the check was added before I knew it was only going
to be used with a single constant value.  That said, the
point was to check at runtime a required constraint.

I'll post version 2 that simply removes it.  Thanks.
