My randconfig tests on linux-next showed a newly introduced warning:

drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_object.c: In function 'amdgpu_bo_create_restricted':
drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_object.c:377:2: error: #warning Please enable CONFIG_MTRR and CONFIG_X86_PAT for better performance thanks to write-combining [-Werror=cpp]

Generally speaking, warnings about bad kernel configuration are not particularly
helpful. We could enforce the selection of X86_PAT through Kconfig, so the driver
cannot even be used unless it is enabled, or we could just rely on the runtime
warning that is also there.

In this version, I'm making the warning conditional on CONFIG_COMPILE_TEST, which
shuts it up for me, but not people that may actually want to run the kernel
as a compromize.

Making AMDGPU depend on X86_PAT would be wrong I think, and any fancier
Kconfig solution might be overkill.

That might make sense, since the runtime warning is only triggered when
the lack of PAT actually makes a difference.

OTOH the people running the kernel aren't always the same people
building it, so the downside is that this would potentially delay
getting X86_PAT enabled.

This is fine with me as well.


Whichever way we end up going for this, it should be applied to the
radeon driver as well.

And exactly for this reason I would rather like to keep the warning.

Right, so let's take the patch as is:

Arnd, can you make the corresponding patch for radeon as well? Otherwise
I can probably do it next week.
