Yes, see also https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues/456 .
The quickest short-term fix is to append "if CC_IS_GCC" to the select
statements. Then when a fix lands in clang one can change that to "if
CC_IS_GCC || CLANG_VERSION >= something". It's probably best if we fix
-next builds ASAP instead of waiting for knowing the proper value of
"something". Nathan, Nick, WDYT?
I had 0day verify my patches before sending them out officially, and
thought it also did clang builds. But apparently not, or not with enough
