RE: [PATCH -next] ia64/sn: fix percpu warnings



DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct list_head [NR_SOFTIRQS], softirq_work_list);
EXPORT_PER_CPU_SYMBOL(softirq_work_list);

and it doesn't cause any warning on x86 neither does it on ia64 with
defconfig. softirq_work_list doesn't trigger any warning there,
right?

Of the 10 EXPORT_PER_CPU_SYMBOL and 4 EXPORT_PER_CPU_SYMBOL_GPL
items on ia64, only __sn_cnodeid_to_nasid and softirq_work_list are
arrays. The latter appears not to be actually used by any in-tree
modules (janitors: does it need to be exported?).

The CRC warning only shows up on a module that uses an exported
per-cpu array. There seems to be nothing special about the
__sn_cnodeid_to_nasid. When I hacked a module to make a random
use of softirq_work_list, it too gave a CRC error.

I just tried an x86_64 build with a module also modified to access
softirq_work_list. It did NOT get a CRC error. So the x86_64
toolchain doesn't seem to have the same issue as ia64.
