The only reason I am not thrilled about this is we will lose out on
warning coverage while the compiler bug gets fixed. I think the AMDGPU
drivers have been the single biggest source of clang warnings.

I think something like:

depends on CC_IS_GCC || (CC_IS_CLANG && COMPILE_TEST)

would end up avoiding the runtime issues and give us warning coverage.
The only issue is that we would still need this patch...

Cheers,
Nathan
