Me neither. That warning (now error) has been seen with all point
releases (i.e. strlen(UTS_RELEASE) < 8) since v5.0.

We had a discussion in
https://lore.kernel.org/all/CAMuHMdX365qmWiii=gQLADpW49EMkdDrVJDPWNBpAZuZM0WQFQ@mail.gmail.com
but without any definitive conclusion.

I'm not sure that might help, as the issue has been seen with
e.g. 8.1.0 and 8.2.0, too, with a slightly different message:
warning: ‘__builtin_memcpy’ forming offset 8 is out of the bounds [0,
7] [-Warray-bounds]

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
