Thanks for bringing this up (again), Arnd.

As this is a known CBL issue please add...

Link: https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues/97

...and...

Tested-by: Sedat Dilek <sedat.dilek@gmail.com>

For the sake of completeness see also the comments of Steven Rostedt
and user "Honeybyte" in the above Link - if not known/read.

P.S.: I am using this patch since 6 months in my
for-5.x/clang-warningfree local Git repository.
