On some architectures (namely ia64, ppc64 and parisc64) function pointers actually refer to function descriptors, which in turn point to the real function address. The compiler usually takes care of such comparism. That said, casting to "unsigned long" might break this... > Signed-off-by: Oscar Carter <oscar.carter@....com> > --- > arch/parisc/kernel/ftrace.c | 2 +- > 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-) > > diff --git a/arch/parisc/kernel/ftrace.c b/arch/parisc/kernel/ftrace.c > index 1df0f67ed667..86b49a5fc049 100644 > --- a/arch/parisc/kernel/ftrace.c > +++ b/arch/parisc/kernel/ftrace.c > @@ -64,7 +64,7 @@ void notrace __hot ftrace_function_trampoline(unsigned long parent, > function_trace_op, regs); > > #ifdef CONFIG_FUNCTION_GRAPH_TRACER > - if (ftrace_graph_return != (trace_func_graph_ret_t) ftrace_stub || > + if ((unsigned long)ftrace_graph_return != (unsigned long)ftrace_stub || Untested, but maybe better use: dereference_function_descriptor(ftrace_graph_return) != dereference_function_descriptor(ftrace_stub) ?
