So my biggest worry isn't gcc-4.5 (anybody who hasn't updated deserves
to be forced, or can stay with old kernels).

No, my biggest worry is clang. What's the status there?

I've pulled this, and honestly, the disaster with
-fmerge-all-constants makes me think that clang isn't that good a
compiler choice anyway, but it's sad if this undoes a lot of clang
work just because of the worries about Spectre and mis-speculated
branches.
