Interesting -- I wonder why this suddenly appeared. I think the fix is
the common "linker addresses need to be char arrays" fix:

This I don't know about it, but looks like a recent commit: dda4fb85e433f
Given it's a 2000 line function, I assume it could be improved! :)

This is:

        memset(&p->irqtrace, 0, sizeof(p->irqtrace));

p->irqtrace is:

        struct irqtrace_events          irqtrace;

But that's a whole object destination... why would only s390 warn?
