I really wish my GCC had emitted a warning for this, I'm on 4.9.2 here:

[davem@localhost linux]$ make net/mac80211/rate.o
CHK include/config/kernel.release
CHK include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h
CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h
CHK include/generated/bounds.h
CHK include/generated/timeconst.h
CHK include/generated/asm-offsets.h
CALL scripts/
CC [M] net/mac80211/rate.o
[davem@localhost linux]$

Linus, what GCC version are you using and what does the warning look

Anyways, Johannes please get this fixed, thanks.
