This is the list of platforms from kernelci.org I've gathered
which appeared to be impacted:

imx6q-sabrelite
imx6q-var-dt6customboard
imx6dl-riotboard
imx6qp-wandboard-revd1
imx7ulp-evk
odroid-xu3
rk3288-rock2-square
rk3288-veyron-jaq
stm32mp157c-dk2
sun4i-a10-olinuxino-lime
sun5i-a13-olinuxino-micro
sun7i-a20-cubieboard2
sun7i-a20-olinuxino-lime2
sun8i-a33-olinuxino
sun8i-a83t-bananapi-m3
sun8i-h2-plus-libretech-all-h3-cc
sun8i-h2-plus-orangepi-r1
sun8i-h2-plus-orangepi-zero
sun8i-h3-libretech-all-h3-cc
sun8i-h3-bananapi-m2-plus
sun8i-h3-orangepi-pc
sun8i-r40-bananapi-m2-ultra

They were all booting next-20210203 with gcc-8 but not with
clang-11. I've run checks on a good share of them with your
patch applied and they're now booting with clang-11, just like
the rk3288 and imx6q platforms that were used for the bisections.

Well it's the standard one from the LLVM Debian package repo:

deb http://apt.llvm.org/buster/ llvm-toolchain-buster-11 main

There's a slightly newer version, I doubt it would make any
difference in this respect unless there's a particular fix in
ld.lld:

# apt policy clang-11
clang-11:
Installed: 1:11.1.0~++20210130110826+3a8282376b6c-1~exp1~20210130221445.158
Candidate: 1:11.1.0~++20210204120158+1fdec59bffc1-1~exp1~20210203230823.159

As mentioned by Nick, it is using everything from LLVM except the
assembler - so not the GNU linker. I've now built a new Docker
container with the latest LLVM package version (.159) as well as
gcc-8-arm-linux-gnueabihf to try with the GNU linker and see if
that makes any difference. More on that shortly...

Guillaume
