While building mxs_defconfig for arm, the following error was encountered:

/builds/linux/arch/arm/mach-mxs/mach-mxs.c:285:26: warning: duplicate 'const' declaration specifier [-Wduplicate-decl-specifier]

This is also seen in other branches (from 4.4 to 5.4). To reproduce this build locally:

tuxmake \
--target-arch=arm \
--kconfig=mxs_defconfig \
--toolchain=gcc-11 \
--runtime=podman \
config default kernel xipkernel modules dtbs dtbs-legacy debugkernel headers
