I put this series on a testing branch,
and 0-day bot started reporting some issues.

(but 0-day bot is quieter than I expected.
Perhaps, 0-day bot does not turn on LLVM=1 ?)



I also got an error for
ARCH=arm64 allyesconfig + CONFIG_LTO_CLANG=y



$ make ARCH=arm64 LLVM=1 LLVM_IAS=1
CROSS_COMPILE=~/tools/aarch64-linaro-7.5/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-
-j24
