GCC and Clang have different policy for -Wunused-function; GCC never
reports unused-function warnings for 'static inline' functions whereas
Clang reports them if they are defined in source files instead of
included headers although it has been suppressed since commit
abb2ea7dfd82 ("compiler, clang: suppress warning for unused static
inline functions").

We often miss to remove unused functions where 'static inline' is used
in .c files since there is no tool to detect them. Unused code remains
until somebody notices. For example, commit 075ddd75680f ("regulator:
core: remove unused rdev_get_supply()").

Let's remove __maybe_unused from the inline macro to allow Clang to
start finding unused static inline functions. As always, it is not a
good idea to sprinkle warnings for the normal build, so I added
-Wno-unsued-function for no W= build.

Per the documentation [1], -Wno-unused-function will also disable
-Wunneeded-internal-declaration, which can help find bugs like
commit 8289c4b6f2e5 ("platform/x86: mlx-platform: Properly use
mlxplat_mlxcpld_msn201x_items"). (pointed out by Nathan Chancellor)
I added -Wunneeded-internal-declaration to address it.

If you contribute to code clean-up, please run "make CC=clang W=1"
and check -Wunused-function warnings. You will find lots of unused
functions.

Some of them are false-positives because the call-sites are disabled
by #ifdef. I do not like to abuse the inline keyword for suppressing
unused-function warnings because it is intended to be a hint for the
compiler's optimization. I prefer __maybe_unused or #ifdef around the
definition.

I am still not a big fan of this as I think it weakens clang as a
standalone compiler but the change itself looks good so if it is going
in anyways:

I'd say __maybe_unused for function parameters that are used depending
of ifdefs in the body of the function, otherwise strictly ifdefs.

So right away for an x86_64 defconfig w/ this patch, clang points out:

drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_sw_fence.c:84:20: warning: unused function
'debug_fence_init_onstack' [-Wunused-function]
static inline void debug_fence_init_onstack(struct i915_sw_fence *fence)
                   ^
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_sw_fence.c:105:20: warning: unused function
'debug_fence_free' [-Wunused-function]
static inline void debug_fence_free(struct i915_sw_fence *fence)
                   ^

The first looks fishy (grep -r debug_fence_init_onstack), the second
only has a callsite ifdef CONFIG_DRM_I915_SW_FENCE_DEBUG_OBJECTS.

drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_guc_submission.c:1117:20: warning: unused
function 'ctx_save_restore_disabled' [-Wunused-function]
static inline bool ctx_save_restore_disabled(struct intel_context *ce)
                   ^
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/display/intel_hdmi.c:1696:26: warning: unused
function 'intel_hdmi_hdcp2_protocol' [-Wunused-function]
enum hdcp_wired_protocol intel_hdmi_hdcp2_protocol(void)
                         ^
arm64 defconfig builds cleanly, same with arm.  Things might get more
hairy with all{yes|mod}config, but the existing things it finds don't
look insurmountable to me.  In fact, I'll file bugs in our issue
tracker (https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues) for the
above.

So I'm not certain this patch weakens existing checks.

Well, we no longer get -Wunused-function warnings without W=1.
Sometimes, that warning is just a result of missed clean up but there
have been instances where it was a real bug:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190523010235.GA105588@archlinux-epyc/

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1558574945-19275-1-git-send-email-skomatineni@nvidia.com/

Having warnings not be equal between compilers out of the box causes
confusion and irritation: https://crbug.com/974884

Is not the objective of ClangBuiltLinux to rely on GCC less?

The only reason that we see the warnings crop up in i915 is because
they add -Wall after all of the warnings get disabled (i.e.
-Wno-unused-function -Wall so -Wunused-function gets enabled again).

To get these warnings after this patch, W=1 has to be used and that
results in a lot of extra warnings. x86_64 defconfig has one objtool
warning right now, W=1 adds plenty more (from both -W flags and lack of
kerneldoc annotations):

https://gist.github.com/175afbca29ead14bd039ad46f4ab0ded

This is just food for thought though.

Nathan

So if we took just the hunk against include/linux/compiler_types.h
from this patch, we'd be back in a situation pre-commit-abb2ea7dfd82
("compiler, clang: suppress warning for unused static inline
functions").  Hmm...

I would like to minimize the number of Clang specific warnings that
are disabled in scripts/Makefile.extrawarn.

Masahiro, does your patch correctly make -Wunused-function work for
clang at W=1?  It looks like -Wunused gets added to warning-1, but
then -Wno-unused-function gets added to KBUILD_CFLAGS after `warning`
does.  Will that work correctly?  I'd imagine that at W=1,
KBUILD_CFLAGS for clang will look like:
... -Wunused -Wno-unused-function ...
which is probably not what we want?

I agree.

I do not want to carry this forever.

After we clean up the warnings (it may take several development cycles),
I want to turn on Wunused-function for all the build mode.

Hmm?

-Wunused is added only when W=1.

-Wno-unused-function is added only when W= was not passed.

They do not happen at the same time.
