FYI this has already been brought up on lkml:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10137237/

IIRC you can get things working by deleting include/config/auto.conf
when you've switched back to CONFIG_UNWINDER_FRAME_POINTER.

I don't believe anything other than making CONFIG_UNWINDER_ORC the
default was intentional. The frustration is just a consequence of some
build system bug.
