The problem with this patch is that it's breaking the following check in
arch/x86/Makefile. GCC 4.9 doesn't support retpolines, so it's supposed
to fail with the below error.

ifdef CONFIG_RETPOLINE
ifeq ($(RETPOLINE_CFLAGS),)
@echo "You are building kernel with non-retpoline compiler." >&2
@echo "Please update your compiler." >&2
@false
endif
endif

Maybe the flags should be placed in another variable other than
RETPOLINE_CFLAGS.
