Ok, google guys, pls make sure you Cc LKML too as this is where *all*
patches and discussions are archived. Adding it now to Cc.

Ok, so why is the kernel supposed to take yet another ugly workaround
because there's a bug in the compiler?

If it is too late to fix it there, then maybe disable LTO builds for the
buggy version only.

We had a similar discussion this week and we already have one buggy
compiler to deal with and this second one is not making it any easier...
