Our friendly compiler guys built it, but it's just a snapshot of trunk,
so it's all heading towards GCC 7.0. AFAIU, the problematic optimisation
is also a mid-end pass, so it would affect other architectures too.

I'm carrying the diff below, which fixes arm64 defconfig, but I'm worried
that we might be relying on this trick elsewhere. The arm __bad_cmpxchg
function, for example.
