On the contrary, I think it's very much worthwhile to test these
branches with Clang. Particularly since CrOS is shipping x86_64
devices built with Clang since 4.4.y. This looks like a problem
that's potentially been fixed but the fix not yet identified and
backported. It would be good for us to identify and fix the issue
before it becomes a problem for CrOS.

Though, it looks like CrOS just skipped 4.9...? Looking at:
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/third_party/kernel/+refs
I don't see a chromeos-4.9 branch.

That said, I still find such reports helpful to track.
