    Btw., while you resolved the issue, it would nevertheless nice to
    introduce a 'make WERROR=0' build method that removes -Werror.

    Would you be interested in sending a patch for that?

    There would be several advantages of such a patch:

    - GCC often introduces new warnings with lots of false positives -
    breaking -Werror builds. WERROR=0 would allow one to build perf
    without much fuss - while people would still send patches to avoid
    the fuss of having to type WERROR=0 :-)

    - bisecting back to commits that produce a (mostly harmless) warning
    on some compiler is more difficult. With WERROR=0 one could bisect
    without worrying about harmless warnings.
