Hello Christoph and Hannes, Today sparse verifies whether or not gfp_t and blk_mq_req_t flags are not mixed with other flags. Combining these two types of flags into a single bit pattern would require some ugly casts to avoid that sparse complains about combining these flags into a single bit pattern. Bart.
