linux-next: build failure after merge of the char-misc tree




Hi all,

After merging the char-misc tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

Caused by commit

  6c4e97678501 ("drivers/misc: Add Aspeed LPC control driver")

Clearly this will only build on arm :-(  You can only use COMPILE_TEST
if you can reasonably expect the build to work on all architectures
and platforms.

I have added the following patch for today (the warnings should be fixed as well):
