Ah, I see what went wrong.

Justin added more than I requested.
Compare the diffstat between:
https://lore.kernel.org/llvm/CAKwvOd=-NXR5HoHwwEUZMsCt90oaADH6XHifje9n-8S8rj9SFw@mail.gmail.com/
with the v2:
https://lore.kernel.org/llvm/20220608001422.26383-1-jstitt007@gmail.com/

Justin, please send a v3 dropping the changes made to the
"__HAVE_BUILTIN_BSWAP*__ is defined" case; just make the changes I
suggested.

In addition, please add to the commit message this snippet from Al:
```
As Al Viro notes:

You *can't* get smaller-than-int out of ? :, same as you can't get it
out of addition, etc.
```

Finally, Justin, you can retest this by running:
$ ARCH=arm make LLVM=1 -j72 allmodconfig fs/xfs/scrub/agheader.o
with your patch applied to linux-next. (It wouldn't hurt to build the
whole thing...but it's next, which is red today for ARCH=arm so nvm:
https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/continuous-integration2/runs/6796317443?check_suite_focus=true).

Thanks,
