[PATCH v2] x86/vmware: use unsigned integer for shifting
Posted by Shreenidhi Shedi 1 month ago
From: Shreenidhi Shedi <yesshedi@gmail.com>

From: Shreenidhi Shedi <sshedi@vmware.com>

Shifting signed 32-bit value by 31 bits is implementation-defined
behaviour. Using unsigned is better option for this.

Fixes: 4cca6ea04d31 ("x86/apic: Allow x2apic without IR on VMware platform")

Can you please decide which of your personalities wrote that patch?

Better option? There are no options. It's either correct or not. Please
be precise and technical in your wording.

Please keep the tags together. This extra new line is pointless and
makes the maintainer do extra work to remove it.

Documentation/process/* has all the relevant directives for
you. Following them is not an option. It's mandatory.

Testing your changes before submission is not optional either. How is
this supposed to compile?

Thanks,

This patch has clearly not been tested, and not even compiled! (It is
missing a semicolon at the end of the return statement).

Please take your time to revise and test your patch based on the
review feedback; there is no hurry! :)

(Also, while at it, the double From: at the beginning of the patch
needs to be fixed too).
