Ideally, a kernel compile with W=1 enabled should complete cleanly;
however, when we run one currently we are presented with ~25k warnings.
'sign-compare' accounts for ~22k of those ~25k.

In this patch we're demoting 'sign-compare' warnings to W=2, with a view
to fixing the remaining 3k W=1 warnings required for a clean build.

As per our discussion, I'd add that this was inadvertedly introduced
by Behan when he moved the clang specific warnings into an ifdef block
and did not notice that -Wsign-compare was interpreted by both gcc
and clang.

Earlier, it was introduced in just the same way by Jan-Simon as part
of 3d3d6b847420 ("kbuild: LLVMLinux: Adapt warnings for compilation with clang").

The new patch looks good to me, please add

Acked-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>
Fixes: 26ea6bb1fef0 ("kbuild, LLVMLinux: Supress warnings unless W=1-3")

I've started looking into building the kernel with clang, and will likely
follow up with further unrelated changes to the list, as clang-3.9
seems to generate a couple of extra warnings we want to suppress.
