Subject[PATCH] fs/exofs: Remove ignored __weak attribute
Date
Clang warns that the __weak attribute is going to be ignored on
g_attr_inode_data because it's not in the correct location (needs to be
after the type).

In file included from fs/exofs/dir.c:35:
In file included from fs/exofs/exofs.h:41:
fs/exofs/common.h:186:21: warning: 'weak' attribute only applies to
variables, functions, and classes [-Wignored-attributes]
static const struct __weak osd_attr g_attr_inode_data = ATTR_DEF(
^

Turns out that GCC ignores the attribute too albeit silently because
moving the attribute after either osd_attr or g_attr_inode_data like
all other uses of __weak on variables in the kernel causes a build
error on both GCC and Clang because static variables cannot be weak
since weak definitions rely on not having internal linkage:

fs/exofs/common.h:186:30: error: weak declaration cannot have internal

static const struct osd_attr __weak g_attr_inode_data = ATTR_DEF(
^

Just remove the attribute because it hasn't been correct since the
initial addition of this file in commit b14f8ab28449 ("exofs: Kbuild,
Headers and osd utils").
