[Xen-devel] [PATCH] x86/grant: Use explicit instruction size in gnttab_clear_flags()

Posted by Andrew Cooper 18 weeks ago
The OpenSUSE Leap compilers complain about ambiguity:

In file included from grant_table.c:33:
In file included from ...xen/include/xen/grant_table.h:30:
...xen/include/asm/grant_table.h:67:19: error: ambiguous instructions require
an explicit suffix (could be 'andb', 'andw', 'andl', or 'andq')
    asm volatile ("lock and %1,%0" : "+m" (*addr) : "ir" ((uint16_t)~mask));
                  ^
<inline asm>:1:2: note: instantiated into assembly here
        lock and $-17,(%rsi)
        ^

Wow - pretty helpful improvement to the compiler, albeit I have
no idea how this actually work. The assembler would have picked
andl here.
