    Subject[PATCH 74/74] lto, workaround: Mark do_futex noinline to prevent clobbering ebp
    From: Andi Kleen <>

    On a 32bit build gcc 4.7 with LTO decides to clobber the 6th argument on the
    stack. Unfortunately this corrupts the user EBP and leads to later crashes.
    For now mark do_futex noinline to prevent this.

    I wish there was a generic way to handle this. Seems like a ticking time
    bomb problem.
