+CC Palmer since he's the maintainer of the code being changed by the
fix.

The Zicbom extension only got support in binutils 2.39, so it's
automatically disabled for your older binutils, along with non-coherent
DMA support. As pointed out, we've already got a reviewed fix for it, so
hopefully that lands soon.

Kinda surprised this didn't trigger complaints from more than just you
and an LKP report, but it may be that having some other options selected
hides the problem.

Palmer, the fix is here if you get a chance to look at it:

Thanks,
Conor.
