I don't think we should rely on that.
That is how a lot of the kernel works. Provide protypes only for code that is semantically compiled, but can't ever be called due to IS_ENABLED() checks. It took me a while to get used to it, but it actually is pretty nice as the linker does the work for you to check that it really is never called. Much better than say a BUILD_BUG_ON(). _______________________________________________ iommu mailing list email@example.com https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/iommu
