Hi all,

After merging the tip tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64 allmodconfig)
failed like this:

In file included from include/uapi/linux/stddef.h:1:0,
                 from include/linux/stddef.h:4,
                 from include/uapi/linux/posix_types.h:4,
                 from include/uapi/linux/types.h:13,
                 from include/linux/types.h:5,
                 from include/linux/sysrq.h:18,
                 from drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_irq.c:31:

Caused by commit

  67d97da34917 ("drm/i915: Only start retire worker when idle")

from the drm-intel tree interacting with commit

  331b6d8c7afc ("locking/barriers: Validate lockless_dereference() is used on a pointer type")

from the tip tree.

From include/linux/compiler.h:

  * lockless_dereference() - safely load a pointer for later dereference
  * @p: The pointer to load

It looks like lockless_dererence() has been used incorrectly
in the drm-intel tree commit since its argument must be a
pointer to be dererenced later. The same thing is done in
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem.c as well.

I have applied the following hack patch for now, but this needs to be
fixed properly.

Right, neither case appears to include a data dependency and thus
lockless_dereference() seems misguided.

Agreed!  At first glance, this code wants READ_ONCE() rather than
lockless_dereference().

							Thanx, Paul
