Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 6/7] percpu: Add __alloc_size attributes for better
 bounds checking

Hello,

Can you elaborate a little bit for me how this works for percpu? In any
case that's not uniprocessor, any modification is done through address
accessors and not on the returned percpu pointer. Is the metadata kept
by gcc/clang able to transpire the percpu pointer accessors?

Thanks,
Dennis
