Digging leaves me with more information, but still not sure of the actual
underlying cause.  min() is defined in include/linux/kernel.h.  Unraveling
the defines, the code that sparse is complaining about is in
__no_side_effects(), which is:

#define __no_side_effects(x, y) \
                (__is_constexpr(x) && __is_constexpr(y))

and __is_constexpr() is:

#define __is_constexpr(x) \
        (sizeof(int) == sizeof(*(8 ? ((void *)((long)(x) * 0l)) : (int *)8)))

The compiler warning points to the second sizeof() in the __is_constexpr() for
'l', which expands as:

  (sizeof(int) == sizeof(*(8 ? ((void *)((long)(   l) * 0l)) : (int *)8)))

I'll dig into this a little more, to see if maybe the problem is related to
my compiler version or sparse version.  Or if the reason lies elsewhere.
