[PATCH] [RFC] ntfs: disable for 64KB because of stack overflow risk

From: Arnd Bergmann

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

On ARM64 randconfig builds, we occasionally get warnings for NTFS:

fs/ntfs/aops.c: In function 'ntfs_write_mst_block':
fs/ntfs/aops.c:1328:1: error: the frame size of 2224 bytes is larger than 2048 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]

The problem here is that with 64KB pages, we get two arrays on the
stack that each have 128 pointers, for a total of 2KB. Before
the VLA change, this could already happen with 512-byte blocks,
however in practice NTFS should usually have 4KB blocks and not
be affected by this (see link).

Now the stack usage is always > 2KB on any architecture with 64KB
pages. Since both NTFS and 64KB page support are fairly rare,
we may get away with just marking the combination as disallowed
in Kconfig and see if anyone complains before we find a different
way to address it.
