Thanks, this is a known issue with GCC 8 that I haven't gotten a chance
to fix yet. They're related to the fact that GCC 8 is splitting out
'unlikely' code into 'cold' subfunctions in .text.unlikely.

I've got some old patches that fix it. Now that GCC 8 is out, I'll need
get the patches dusted off and cleaned up for merging.
