That shit should be fixed in debian; no amount of kbuild changes will help
on bisect going back to a state prior to those. IOW, no matter what we
do kernel-side, that fuckup by doku, balint, needs to be fixed in
debian gcc package.

Al, seriously disappointed by that mess - debian gcc packagers are generally
clued enough to have known better. Reassigning bug reports in question
from gcc-6 to linux is beyond stupid; Balint is either being deliberately
obtuse, or geniunely unable to imagine that somebody might be using the
compiler _not_ for debian package builds.
