Subject[PATCH v2 09/10] compiler/gcc: Raise minimum GCC version for kernel builds to 4.8
Date
It is very rare to see versions of GCC prior to 4.8 being used to build
the mainline kernel. These old compilers are also know to have codegen
issues which can lead to silent miscompilation:

https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58145

Raise the minimum GCC version for kernel build to 4.8 and remove some
tautological Kconfig dependencies as a consequence.
