While building Perf for arm, arm64, i386 and x86, all with GCC 11, the following errors were encountered:

util/parse-events-hybrid.c: In function 'add_hw_hybrid':
util/parse-events-hybrid.c:84:17: error: implicit declaration of function 'copy_config_terms'; did you mean 'perf_pmu__config_terms'? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
84 | copy_config_terms(&terms, config_terms);

| perf_pmu__config_terms
util/parse-events-hybrid.c:88:17: error: implicit declaration of function 'free_config_terms'; did you mean 'perf_pmu__config_terms'? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
88 | free_config_terms(&terms);
| ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

To reproduce this build locally (for instance):
tuxmake \
--target-arch=x86_64 \
--kconfig=defconfig \
--kconfig-add= \
--kconfig-add= \
--kconfig-add= \
--kconfig-add= \
--kconfig-add= \
--kconfig-add=CONFIG_IGB=y \
--kconfig-add=CONFIG_FTRACE_SYSCALLS=y \
--toolchain=gcc-11 \
--runtime=podman \

The nbd problems persist on some Arm configurations with Clang (footbridge_defconfig, mini2440_defconfig, s3c2410_defconfig):
ERROR: modpost: "__mulodi4" [drivers/block/nbd.ko] undefined!
