That's Linux 4.9-rc1

30cbc591 Darrick J. Wong 2016-03-09 @86         
XFS_CHECK_STRUCT_SIZE(xfs_dir2_data_unused_t,           6);

But that's not how xfs_ondisk.h in 4.9-rc1 looks like

Yeah it's a bit confusing for old errors -- the git blame is on the
old first bad commit, which is

ab9d1e4f7b0217948a3b35a64178602ab30ff45d Merge branch 'xfs-misc-fixes-4.6-3' 
into for-next

30cbc591 Darrick J. Wong 2016-03-09 @96         
XFS_CHECK_STRUCT_SIZE(xfs_dir2_sf_entry_t,              3);

And that's line 119.

Something is odd about this report.

But both xfs_dir2_data_unused_t and xfs_dir2_sf_entry_t have one thing in
common: they are strutures that aren't padded to a natural alignment at
the end.  It seems like the openrisc gcc does implicit padding for them,
which sounds like a nightmware waiting to happen for any sort of disk
or network structure, so I'm really not sure if we should work around
it in xfs.

FYI the error for 'xfs_dir2_sf_entry_t' only shows up in openrisc;
and the 'xfs_attr_shortform_t' error only shows up in cris builds.

There is no errors for 'xfs_dir2_data_unused_t' in recent kernels.
