Subject: [PATCH v2] net: Protect INET_ADDR_COOKIE on 32-bit architectures

Commit c7228317441f ("net: Use a more standard macro for
INET_ADDR_COOKIE") added a __deprecated marker to the cookie name on
32-bit architectures, with the intent that the compiler would flag
uses of the name. However since commit 771c035372a0 ("deprecate the
'__deprecated' attribute warnings entirely and for good"),
__deprecated doesn't do anything and should be avoided.

This patch changes INET_ADDR_COOKIE to declare a dummy struct so that
any subsequent use of the cookie's name will in all likelihood break
the build. It also removes the __deprecated marker.

Signed-off-by: Stephen Kitt <>
Changes since v1:
  - use a dummy struct rather than a typedef
