This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.24. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
There is no bug here. The original poster is complaining about gcc issuing a warning, but the code is correct.
I'm not sure I understand the rationale for this not being called a "bug" ...
But even if it's "just" a warninng, that's still a regression. And so it should be fixed.
It's not a bug because the code is correct, both on the source and the binary level.
