Hi Mauro,

After merging the v4l-dvb tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc ppc64_defconfig)
failed like this:

arch/powerpc/kernel/smp.c:764:2: error: initialization from incompatible pointer type [-Werror]
{ cpu_smt_mask, powerpc_smt_flags, SD_INIT_NAME(SMT) },
arch/powerpc/kernel/smp.c:764:2: error: (near initialization for 'powerpc_topology[0].sd_flags') [-Werror]

Caused by commit 6a0b50087a89 ("Merge branch 'patchwork' into
to_next"). The change to include/linux/sched.h in this merge commit
does not seem to appear in either of the parents of the merge.

Its also a change that (when suggested) was shown to cause more
problems than it was worth and dropped. I can't imagine how it ended
up in the merge commit.

Do you mean b6220ad66 (sched: Fix compiler warnings) ? I thought that was accepted
a week or so ago.
