Commit Message

Fenghua Yu Oct. 20, 2020, 11:51 p.m. UTC
Reinette reported following compilation issue on Fedora 32, gcc version

/usr/bin/ld: cmt_test.o:<src_dir>/cmt_test.c:22: multiple definition of
`cache_size'; cat_test.o:<src_dir>/cat_test.c:23: first defined here

The same issue is reported for long_mask and count_of_bits variables as
well. Compiler isn't happy because these variables are defined globally in
two .c files namely cmt_test.c and cat_test.c and the compiler during
compilation finds that the variable is already defined (multiple definition

Taking a closer look at the usage of these variables reveals that these
variables are used only locally to cmt_resctrl_val() (defined in
cmt_test.c) and cat_perf_miss_val() (defined in cat_test.c) functions.
These variables are not shared between the two functions. So, there is no
need for these variables to be global. Hence, fix this issue by making
them local variables to the functions where they are used.
