Sami tagged this series on his GitHub:

https://github.com/samitolvanen/linux/releases/tag/lto-v1

git pull https://github.com/samitolvanen/linux lto-v1

Otherwise, he is updating the clang-cfi branch that includes both the
LTO and CFI patchsets. You can pull that and just turn on
CONFIG_LTO_CLANG.

Lastly, for the future, I would recommend grabbing b4 to easily apply
patches (specifically full series) from lore.kernel.org.

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/b4/b4.git/
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/b4/b4.git/tree/README.rst

You could grab this series and apply it easily by either downloading the
mbox file and following the instructions it gives for applying the mbox
file:

$ b4 am 20200624203200.78870-1-samitolvanen@google.com

or I prefer piping so that I don't have to clean up later:

$ b4 am -o - 20200624203200.78870-1-samitolvanen@google.com | git am

Cheers,
Nathan
