Subject: Sparse improvements & regressions for Linux v5.9-rc1 -> v5.10-rc1

Hi,

Here is a comparison of Sparse's unique warnings between v5.9-rc1 &
v5.10-rc1 on x86-64 (defconfig + allyesconfig).

This time, there is a VERY significant decrease in the number of
warnings, almost 20% less. On ppc64, the difference is 31%. This big
difference is mainly but not only caused by "cast to restricted type"
warnings or related, like "different base types".

Some of these differences come from changes in Sparse, but most come
from changes in the kernel itself.

The raw logs as well as the result of the processing giving the
'unique warnings' are available at:
