Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 134/252] mlx5: work around high stack usage with gcc

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

[ Upstream commit 42ae1a5c76691928ed217c7e40269db27f5225e9 ]

In some configurations, gcc tries too hard to optimize this code:

drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_stats.c: In function 'mlx5e_grp_sw_update_stats':
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_stats.c:302:1: error: the frame size of 1336 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]

As was stated in the bug report, the reason is that gcc runs into a corner
case in the register allocator that is rather hard to fix in a good way.

As there is an easy way to work around it, just add a comment and the
barrier that stops gcc from trying to overoptimize the function.
