percpu: Add __percpu sparse annotations to hw_breakpoint
Tejun Heo [Wed, 17 Feb 2010 01:50:50 +0000 (10:50 +0900)]
Add __percpu sparse annotations to hw_breakpoint.

These annotations are to make sparse consider percpu variables to be
in a different address space and warn if accessed without going
through percpu accessors.  This patch doesn't affect normal builds.

In kernel/hw_breakpoint.c, per_cpu(nr_task_bp_pinned, cpu)'s will
trigger spurious noderef related warnings from sparse.  Changing it to
&per_cpu(nr_task_bp_pinned[0], cpu) will work around the problem but
deemed to ugly by the maintainer.  Leave it alone until better
solution can be found.
