[Qemu-devel] [PULL 07/21] atomic.h: Work around gcc spurious "unused val

From: Peter Maydell
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 07/21] atomic.h: Work around gcc spurious "unused value" warning
Date: Thu, 10 May 2018 18:45:05 +0100

Some versions of gcc produce a spurious warning if the result of
__atomic_compare_echange_n() is not used and the type involved
is a signed 8 bit value:
  error: value computed is not used [-Werror=unused-value]
This has been seen on at least
 gcc (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.9) 5.4.0 20160609

Work around this by using an explicit cast to void to indicate
that we don't care about the return value.

We don't currently use our atomic_cmpxchg() macro on any signed
8 bit types, but the upcoming support for the Arm v8.1-Atomics
will require it.
