Merge tag 'drm-4.7-rc1-headers-fix' of git://
Pull header warning fix from Dave Airlie: "Here is the C++ guards warning fix from Arnd" [ Background: there are 'extern "C" { }' guards in include/uapi for the GPU headers. They should arguably be wrapped somehow, but as it is they caused checkpatch to warn because it would trigger on the 'extern' and think it's exporting a function or variable from the kernel to user space. This just fixes checkpatch. Whether we wrap the C++ guards some way in the future will be an independent issue. ] * tag 'drm-4.7-rc1-headers-fix' of git:// headers_check: don't warn about c++ guards
