include/linux/relay.h: fix percpu annotation in struct rchan
The percpu member of this structure is declared as: struct ... ** __percpu member; So its type is: __percpu pointer to pointer to struct ... But looking at how it's used, its type should be: pointer to __percpu pointer to struct ... and it should thus be declared as: struct ... * __percpu *member; So fix the placement of '__percpu' in the definition of this structures. This silents a few Sparse's warnings like: warning: incorrect type in initializer (different address spaces) expected void const [noderef] <asn:3> *__vpp_verify got struct sched_domain ** Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20190118144902.79065-1-luc.vanoostenryck@gmail.com Fixes: 017c59c042d01 ("relay: Use per CPU constructs for the relay channel buffer pointers") Signed-off-by: Luc Van Oostenryck <luc.vanoostenryck@gmail.com> Cc: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
