Hmm. This brings in a new warning:

  drivers/clocksource/timer-ixp4xx.c:78:20: warning:
‘ixp4xx_read_sched_clock’ defined but not used [-Wunused-function]

because that drivers is enabled for build testing, but that function
is only used under

  #ifdef CONFIG_ARM
        sched_clock_register(ixp4xx_read_sched_clock, 32, timer_freq);

It's not clear why that #ifdef is there. This driver only builds
non-ARM when COMPILE_TEST is enabled, and that #ifdef actually breaks
that build test.

I'm going to remove that #ifdef in my merge, because I do *not* want
to see new warnings, and it doesn't seem to make any sense.

Maybe that's the wrong resolution, please holler and let me know if
you want something else.
