When compiling with clang you get many warnings of the following type:

[2885/4321] Compiling ctdb/tools/ctdb.c
../ctdb/server/ctdb_daemon.c:136:40: warning: comparison of integers of different signs: 'int' and 'uint32_t' (aka 'unsigned int') [-Wsign-compare]
                if (ctdb_queue_length(client->queue) > client->ctdb->tunable.max_queue_depth_drop_msg) {
                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That should be easy to fix. Not so easy to fix is:

../ctdb/server/ctdb_daemon.c:158:6: warning: cast from 'struct ctdb_req_header *' to 'struct ctdb_req_message_old *' increases required alignment from 4 to 8 [-Wcast-align]
        r = ctdbd_allocate_pkt(client->ctdb, client->ctdb, CTDB_REQ_MESSAGE,
../ctdb/include/ctdb_client.h:65:2: note: expanded from macro 'ctdbd_allocate_pkt'
        (type *)_ctdbd_allocate_pkt(ctdb, mem_ctx, operation, length, \

which on x86_64 is a performance issue if at all. If we still had
sparc, this would be a real problem.
