Subject[PATCH 4.14 19/72] x86/build: Fix compiler support check for CONFIG_RETPOLINE
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com>

commit 25896d073d8a0403b07e6dec56f58e6c33678207 upstream.

It is troublesome to add a diagnostic like this to the Makefile
parse stage because the top-level Makefile could be parsed with
a stale include/config/auto.conf.

Once you are hit by the error about non-retpoline compiler, the
compilation still breaks even after disabling CONFIG_RETPOLINE.

The easiest fix is to move this check to the "archprepare" like
this commit did:

829fe4aa9ac1 ("x86: Allow generating user-space headers without a compiler")
