Subject[PATCH] Support gcc 6 for building
From: Andi Kleen <>

gcc recently switched to a new version number scheme, where every version
gets a new major version number. The current version is 5.x, the next 6.x, etc.

The gcc git repository trunk branch just switched to report 6.x for the next
major release.

This breaks the way Linux selects compiler-gccX.h based on the major
version. Every new version would require adding a new compiler-gccX.h file,
which wouldn't really scale.

Let's assume that future gccs are fairly compatible (they are unlikely
to break anything Linux is relying on). So we can just keep using
compiler-gcc5.h, and select any specific differences with #if.
