Hello Nathan,
I went down on this issue, but I have no idea how to proceed. These
are my findings:
- This commit (ba1f77c546966c12d86220d078e5838dcaeab348) fixes the
build, thus allowing this error to happen later (in LTO stage)
- The commit that introduced this issue was 69d0db01e210, due to removing :
ubsan-cflags-$(CONFIG_UBSAN_OBJECT_SIZE) += -fsanitize=object-size
- Only by having this flag enabled in ubsan-cflags-y on
torvalds/master causes the build to succeed

At this point, given the commit message in 69d0db01e210 I was thinking
of finding & fixing the code that causes the ld.lld error to happen,
but I was lacking the skills to extract any filename from LTO step.

But it's also possible to create a patch just adding
'ubsan-cflags-$(CONFIG_SOMETHING) += -fsanitize=object-size'
and fix this build.

What would you suggest?

Best regards,
Leo
