I understand that is what you are attempting, but that does not mean
it /belongs/ in -stable.

There are rules for stable, and people that track stable kernels (such
as the distros) should be able to rely on us to only backport bug
fixes, not linker script changes and other updates that fix issues
that did not exist when those kernels were released.

It is unclear to me how these clang changes benefit those users.
