    Subject[PATCH 17/21] lto, workaround: Disable LTO for BPF
    From: Andi Kleen <>

    Disable LTO for the BPF interpreter. This works around a gcc bug in the LTO
    partitioner that partitions the jumptable used the BPF interpreter
    into a different LTO unit. This in term causes assembler
    errors because the jump table contains references to the
    code labels in the original file.
