If the warn_report() message that is already printed by
qemu_ram_writeback() is insufficient in terms of error reporting, I
suggest propagating the return value from qemu_ram_writeback() and

Generally object files are built as part of common-obj-y in
Makefile.objs.  These object files are built only once across all QEMU
targets (e.g. qemu-system-x86_64, qemu-system-arm, ...).

Some code embeds target-specific information and is therefore not
suitable for common-obj-y.  These object files are built as part of
obj-y in Makefile.objs.

You can fix this compilation issue by changing hw/block/Makefile.objs
to like this:

diff --git a/hw/block/Makefile.objs b/hw/block/Makefile.objs
index 4b4a2b338d..12d5d5dac6 100644
