I applied John's patch below to v5.3-rc3-285-gecb095bff5d4 and have been running the resultant kernel for two days now,
including 7 or 8 cold starts and reboots. The warnings that were produced by gcc9 are no longer emitted and, other than
a pre-existing problem (no network after resume from suspend or hibernate which I will investigate and, if necessary,
report later today), the kernel has supported my typical day to day activities (building software, email, browsing,
listening to music, watching video) without problem.
