Oh, indeed, these are not covered by the first patch.

I realize that KEYPC depends on ISA, but with COMPILE_TEST as
alternative. We can build serialio in the COMPILE_TEST case too, I'll
update the patches.

But then we'll still have:

Actually I was surprised by the riscv build issue: the issue is within
riscv's inb() implementation, serialio.c is only calling it.
arch/riscv/include/asm/io.h says:

#define PCI_IOBASE		((void __iomem *)PCI_IO_START)
#define inb(c)		({ u8  __v; __io_pbr(); __v = readb_cpu((void*)(PCI_IOBASE + (c))); __io_par(__v); __v; })

and thus yes it's arithmetic over a (void*) pointer, the caller cannot
do anything about it.

8250_port.c itself uses inb(), doesn't it get a warning as well? Or is
it getting compiled-out on riscv because of some Kconfig condition?  I
see that the whole drivers/tty/serial is under HAS_IOMEM, and that's the
only condition I can see for 8250_port.c (except SERIAL_8250 of course),
is that it, or is SERIAL_8250 just not enabled in the riscv bot?

Actually the warning seems new, when looking at the Debian build log:


and looking for serialio.c, I do not see a warning, and its code hasn't
changed. Is the build bot compiler just more talkative?
