OK, I confirmed that this happened with both gcc-7.3.0 and gcc-8.1.0
with your config.
I also confirmed that CONFIG_GCOV_PROFILE_ALL causes same issue.
(Note that CONFIG_GCOV_PROFILE_ALL depends on !CONFIG_COMPILE_TEST,
so allyesconfig disables it always)

Hmm, now gcov kernel itself might have a problem on arm and
powerpc(on gcc-8)?

Thanks,
