I was playing around with building the kernel with LLVM a few months
ago and used this local patch, but didn't get around to submitting
upstream because I couldn't reproduce the problem for some reason. I
think the warnings you're getting sound like what I saw back then:
https://gist.github.com/thejh/0434662728afb95d72455bf30ece5817

Quoting the commit message from that patch:

====
With clang from git master, code can be generated where a function contains
two indirect jump instructions that use the same switch table. To deal with
this case and similar ones properly, convert the switch table parsing to
use two passes:
====

Does that sound like what you're seeing?
