The selftests still fail to build:

  cc -Wall -O2 -flto -Wall -Werror -DGIT_VERSION='"v4.0-rc1-13631-gdfcba4b"' -I/home/buildbot/buildbot/slave/selftests-ppc64-gcc-ubuntu-be/build/tools/testing/selftests/powerpc  -lpthread    dscr_default_test.c ../harness.c   -o dscr_default_test
  In file included from dscr_default_test.c:16:0:

    read(fd, buf, sizeof(buf));
  dscr.h: In function ‘set_default_dscr’:

  cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
  make[1]: *** [dscr_default_test] Error 1

I'm happy for you to call perror() and exit(1) if either fail.

Please fix and resend.
