Very strange. My clang build gives a warning I've never seen before:

/tmp/io_uring-dd40c4.s:26476: Warning: ignoring changed section
attributes for .data..read_mostly

and looking at what clang generates for the *.s file, it seems to be
the "section" line in:

.type io_op_defs,@object # @io_op_defs
.section .data..read_mostly,"a",@progbits
.p2align 4

I think it's the combination of "const" and "__read_mostly".

I think the warning is sensible: how can a piece of data be both
"const" and "__read_mostly"? If it's "const", then it's not "mostly"
read - it had better be _always_ read.

I'm letting it go, and I've pulled this (gcc doesn't complain), but
please have a look.
