Roman, please use ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl (in the kernel tree) for that.

Should be CONFIG_CC_IS_CLANG; is more canonical throughout the tree.
Or if this is only a bug when doing builds with LTO, and LTO is not
yet upstream, then maybe Sami should carry this in his series, at
least until I can fix the bug in Clang. Or guard this with the
CONFIG_LTO_CLANG config (not upstream yet; see Sami's series).

This is exactly the same code from __restore_processor_state. If it's
ugly, talk to the author of 7ee18d677989e. ;) All this patch is doing
is moving this up a call frame (though now this is effectively being
run twice).

We could do that, too. (We can disable LTO on a per translation unit
basis in KBuild). Note the author of the bug report linked above. :^P
