Subject[PATCH 5.4 073/132] gcov: Disable gcov build with GCC 10
Date
From: Leon Romanovsky <leonro@nvidia.com>

[ Upstream commit cfc905f158eaa099d6258031614d11869e7ef71c ]

GCOV built with GCC 10 doesn't initialize n_function variable. This
produces different kernel panics as was seen by Colin in Ubuntu and me
in FC 32.

As a workaround, let's disable GCOV build for broken GCC 10 version.
