 The XFS library header files contained in xfsprogs (2.9.3-1) contain
many errors. Run the following command on a Linux system to verify:

gcc -Wall -Wextra -Wfloat-equal -Wbad-function-cast -Wsign-compare
- -Wunreachable-code -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual -Wcast-align
- -Wstrict-prototypes -Wformat-security -Wformat-nonliteral
- -Wnested-externs -Wshadow -Wconversion -Wdeclaration-after-statement
- -Wundef -Wpadded -Wredundant-decls -pedantic -c -o xfs_repair.o

(you can use any file which #includes the libxfs.h header). The use of
'long long' is less important. The header files should not only be
ISO-C-compatible, but even ANSI-C-compatible. This will allow anyone
to use them.

I wouldn't call "padding struct to align..." an error either.

I'm guessing (not 100% sure) all the "warning: ISO C forbids
braced-groups within expressions" is from the endian swap calls which
eventually gets to __swabXX() #defines with {} in them in swab.h.

Related is the warning "declaration of '__x' shadows a
previous local" caused by the beXX_add() functions doing a double
__swabXX() call. Can't see an easy solution to these.

"passing argument n of 'func' with different width due to prototype"
doesn't seem to be an issue either. Could add lots of casts to hide it.

Redeclaring optind in platform_getoptreset() in linux.h could be fixed.

 Also, a following error occurs in the library:

 gcc -g -O2 -DDEBUG -DVERSION=\"2.9.3\"
- -DLOCALEDIR=\"/usr/local/share/locale\" -DPACKAGE=\"xfsprogs\"
- -I./include -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -funsigned-char
- -fno-strict-aliasing -Wall -I. -g -O2 -DNDEBUG -DVERSION=\"2.9.3\"
- -DLOCALEDIR=\"/usr/local/share/locale\" -DPACKAGE=\"xfsprogs\"
- -I../include -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -funsigned-char
- -fno-strict-aliasing -Wall -c xfs_bmap.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o

xfs_bmap.c: In function 'xfs_bmap_add_extent':
xfs_bmap.c:287: warning: implicit declaration of function

and because of this, we have:

../libxfs/.libs/libxfs.a(xfs_bmap.o)(.text+0x6cf1): In function
xfsprogs-2.9.3/libxfs/xfs_bmap.c:287: undefined reference to
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[1]: *** [xfs_copy] Error 1

It is a known issue that libxfs does not build with DEBUG defined.
In the libxfs Makefile:

# don't try linking xfs_repair with a debug libxfs.
