I checked before/after with the replacement patch that doesn't
have compiler warnings. On x86, there is zero codegen difference
(objdump -dr before/after matches exactly) for both x86-32 with 32-bit
dma_addr_t and x86-64. For x86-32 with 64-bit dma_addr_t, the compiler
makes some different inlining decisions in page_pool_empty_ring(),
page_pool_put_page() and page_pool_put_page_bulk(), but it's not clear
to me that they're wrong.
Function old new delta
page_pool_empty_ring 387 307 -80
page_pool_put_page 604 516 -88
page_pool_put_page_bulk 690 517 -173
