Make sched_feat(x) return 1 or 0 instead of 2**x or 0 when sysctl_sched_features is constant, by changing the left shift of the mask-bit to a right shift of the bitmap. The behaviour of the code remains unchanged. We prove this by showing that the compiler can evaluate this shift during compile time, which results in generating the same machine code as before.
This patch is motivated by the clang warning Wconstant-logical-operand, issued when logically comparing a variable to a constant integer that is neither 1 nor 0. It happens for sched_feat(x) when sysctl_sched_features is constant, i.e., CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG is not set. kernel/sched/fair.c:3927:14: warning: use of logical '&&' with constant operand [-Wconstant-logical-operand] if (initial && sched_feat(START_DEBIT)) ^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ kernel/sched/fair.c:3927:14: note: use '&' for a bitwise operation if (initial && sched_feat(START_DEBIT)) ^~ & kernel/sched/fair.c:3927:14: note: remove constant to silence this warning if (initial && sched_feat(START_DEBIT)) ~^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This resolves the warning, leaves the code base largely as is. Tested with gcc 7.3.1 and clang 6.0.0 on x86_64, comparing resulting binaries with diff.
