If compiler_types.h which includes compiler_attributes.h is being
implicitly including by Kbuild add `-include` flags to most
translation units in the kernel, it would be nice to be able to use it
everywhere. I consider open coded __attribute__'s a portability bug.
So including the header in arch/powerpc/boot/*.c would be my
preference.
