Ouch, hell yes. Compiler bugs are nasty to chase down.

If there is a well-known list of compilers, we should put a BIG warning
in some core kernel file to guide people to upgrade (or maybe work
around it by forcing -fno-frame-pointer if that fixes it for the
affected compilers).

Do we have a list?
