[PATCH] compiler: add support for gcc 6

From: Anton Blanchard
Date: Tue Apr 14 2015 - 17:33:18 EST

gcc has recently bumped its major version and this is causing kernel
build errors. Create include/linux/compiler-gcc6.h which is a copy
of compiler-gcc5.h, minus a few comments that no longer apply.

Signed-off-by: Anton Blanchard <anton@xxxxxxxxx>

I'm told the versioning scheme in gcc has changed, and to expect
much more rev'ing of the major version. We should probably rethink
if we need a separate file per major version.
