[PATCH 2/3] disable -Wattribute-alias warning for SYSCALL_DEFINEx()

From: Paul Burton
Date: Fri Jun 15 2018 - 20:57:17 EST

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

gcc-8 warns for every single definition of a system call entry
point, e.g.:

include/linux/compat.h:56:18: error: 'compat_sys_rt_sigprocmask' alias between functions of incompatible types 'long int(int, compat_sigset_t *, compat_sigset_t *, compat_size_t)' {aka 'long int(int, struct <anonymous> *, struct <anonymous> *, unsigned int)'} and 'long int(long int, long int, long int, long int)' [-Werror=attribute-alias]
asmlinkage long compat_sys##name(__MAP(x,__SC_DECL,__VA_ARGS__))\
include/linux/compat.h:45:2: note: in expansion of macro 'COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINEx'
kernel/signal.c:2601:1: note: in expansion of macro 'COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE4'
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE4(rt_sigprocmask, int, how, compat_sigset_t __user *, nset,
include/linux/compat.h:60:18: note: aliased declaration here
asmlinkage long compat_SyS##name(__MAP(x,__SC_LONG,__VA_ARGS__))\

The new warning seems reasonable in principle, but it doesn't
help us here, since we rely on the type mismatch to sanitize the
system call arguments. After I reported this as GCC PR82435, a new
-Wno-attribute-alias option was added that could be used to turn the
warning off globally on the command line, but I'd prefer to do it a
little more fine-grained.

Interestingly, turning a warning off and on again inside of
a single macro doesn't always work, in this case I had to add
an extra statement inbetween and decided to copy the __SC_TEST
one from the native syscall to the compat syscall macro. See
https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=83256 for more details
about this.

- Rebase atop current master.
- Split GCC & version arguments to __diag_ignore() in order to match
changes to the preceding patch.
- Add the comment argument to match the preceding patch.]
