This is an empty static inline function...

... and so is this. I think these have very little to do with the
problem that you reported. My guess is they show up because these are
included very early.

The commonality between all these errors is that they originate from
compiling arch/x86/entry/vdso/vdso32/vclock_gettime.c.

Is the build system adding special flags for vdso? In which case, it's
probably just GCC complaining about every function definition (static
inline or otherwise) for that TU if (for whatever reason) it's
delaying the flag compatibility check until it inspects function
attributes.

And indeed, I can see:

RETPOLINE_VDSO_CFLAGS_GCC := -mindirect-branch=thunk-inline
-mindirect-branch-register

And taking any test source with even an empty function definition:

> gcc -mindirect-branch=thunk-inline -fcf-protection test.c
> test.c: In function ‘main’:
> test.c:6:1: error: ‘-mindirect-branch’ and ‘-fcf-protection’ are
not compatible
