gcc-10: avoid shadowing standard library 'free()' in crypto
gcc-10 has started warning about conflicting types for a few new built-in functions, particularly 'free()'. This results in warnings like: crypto/xts.c:325:13: warning: conflicting types for built-in function ‘free’; expected ‘void(void *)’ [-Wbuiltin-declaration-mismatch] because the crypto layer had its local freeing functions called 'free()'. Gcc-10 is in the wrong here, since that function is marked 'static', and thus there is no chance of confusion with any standard library function namespace. But the simplest thing to do is to just use a different name here, and avoid this gcc mis-feature. [ Side note: gcc knowing about 'free()' is in itself not the mis-feature: the semantics of 'free()' are special enough that a compiler can validly do special things when seeing it. So the mis-feature here is that gcc thinks that 'free()' is some restricted name, and you can't shadow it as a local static function. Making the special 'free()' semantics be a function attribute rather than tied to the name would be the much better model ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
