Can you please make sure that gets fixed at some point too? No huge
hurry, it can wait for the next merge window, but bugs like that not
only cause this kind of stupid compile errors, they also cause really
odd "why doesn't it work" problems that people can spend tons and tons
of time debugging, because they don't really "exist" - they're just a
result of a stale object file that didn't get properly recompiled.

I do "git clean -dqfx" every once in a while (especially after having
done "make allmodconfig" builds before -rc releases etc), and I don't
recompile the perf tools very often. So yeah, this was the first build
after a cleanout event.
