[PATCH] uapi/linux/const.h: Prefer ISO-friendly __typeof__

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


typeof is (still) a GNU extension, which means that it cannot be
used when building ISO C (e.g. -std=c99). It should therefore be
avoided in uapi headers in favour of the ISO-friendly __typeof__.

Unfortunately this issue could not be detected by
CONFIG_UAPI_HEADER_TEST=y as the __ALIGN_KERNEL() macro is not
expanded in any uapi header.
