Yes, sorry I should have included more context. It was actually the
Clang Linux folks who noticed it and reported it to us:
https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues/593

There's an LLVM bug filed:
https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42762

And I think there's now agreement that the Clang behaviour is not
correct, Nick actually sent a revert as well but I already had one
queued:
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1144980/

Arnd identified some work arounds, which we may end up using, but for
this cycle we thought it was preferable to just revert this change as it
didn't actually change code generation with GCC anyway.

cheers
