I am the original reporter and tester of the ClangBuiltLinux issue
#619 and highly appreciate to have the single fix in Linux v5.3 final.

The compiler-attribute patchset sit for some weeks in linux-next, so I
have not seen any complains.

What I still prefer is to re-integrate the arm64 and sh arch related
patches which went through maintainer's trees in linux-next.
AFAICS some massage of the commit messages were missing, too.

devil's OMG dileks used compiler and linker: LLVM/Clang and LLD v9.0.0-rc3
