SubjectRe: x86 - clang / objtool status
Hi Thomas,

I can't comment on the objtool stuff as it is a bit outside of my area
of expertise (probably going to be my next major learning project) but I
can comment on the other errors.

Arnd sent a patch for this which has been picked up:

It is a clang bug but has a kernel side fix. Nick sent one but it sounds
like Intel has another one pending:

Has a kernel workaround patch posted but it should be fixed in clang:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190703081119.209976-1-arnd@arndb.de/

https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42604

Thanks for continuing to test it and keeping us posted on the issues!
Nathan
