[PATCH 3/4] pc-bios/s390-ccw: Silence GCC 11 stringop-overflow warning

Subject: [PATCH 3/4] pc-bios/s390-ccw: Silence GCC 11 stringop-overflow warning
Date: Sun, 2 May 2021 19:48:35 +0200

From: Philippe Mathieu-Daudé <philmd@redhat.com>

When building on Fedora 34 (gcc version 11.0.0 20210210) we get:

  In file included from pc-bios/s390-ccw/main.c:11:
  In function ‘memset’,
      inlined from ‘boot_setup’ at pc-bios/s390-ccw/main.c:185:5,
      inlined from ‘main’ at pc-bios/s390-ccw/main.c:288:5:
  pc-bios/s390-ccw/libc.h:28:14: warning: writing 1 byte into a region of size 
0 [-Wstringop-overflow=]
     28 |         p[i] = c;
        |         ~~~~~^~~

The offending code is:

  memset((char *)S390EP, 0, 6);

where S390EP is a const address:

  #define S390EP 0x10008

The compiler doesn't now how big that pointed area is, so assume its
length is zero. This has been reported as BZ#99578 to GCC:
"gcc-11 -Warray-bounds or -Wstringop-overread warning when accessing a
pointer from integer literal"

As this warning does us more harm than good in the BIOS code (where
lot of direct accesses to low memory are done), silence this warning
for all BIOS objects.
