While doing some code auditing for -Woverride_init, I spotted some questionable code

net: ethernet: mtk_eth_soc: add flow offloading support

In drivers/net/ethernet/mediatek/mtk_ppe_offload.c:

+static const struct rhashtable_params mtk_flow_ht_params = {
+ .head_offset = offsetof(struct mtk_flow_entry, node),
+ .head_offset = offsetof(struct mtk_flow_entry, cookie),
+ .key_len = sizeof(unsigned long),
+ .automatic_shrinking = true,

What's intended for head_offset here?

Christoph: This was the only actual questionable code caught by override-init
across allmodconfig builds of arm, arm64, and x86_64. The other 218 warnings
not already silenced by Makefile twiddling of CFLAGS are all legitimate. I
admit not being sure what that means for its use in W=1 builds in general.
