Re: Where are the specific WARNS=n defined?

I'm trying to modularize a couple of drivers, and one of them is
generating some gcc errors due to comparison of signed and unsigned

The driver module is currently being compiled with WARNS=4 (just picked
that up from another Makefile).  Is there a more appropriate WARNS=n to
use to permit the comparison?  Or should I simply add

        CCOPTS+= -Wno-sign-compare

(which is used when the driver is being compiled as part of a kernel)?

It is best to fix the errors.

Yeah, OK!   :)

Fixing, will commit shortly.
