Thanks for maintaining an invaluable tool.

How would the reports be duplicated? Does 0day bot build with GCC,
then rebuild with Clang?

Regardless, does it matter? If I make a mistake, and get two build
failure emails from 0day bot instead of one, does it matter? Sometimes
developers may just get one, as some warnings are unique to each
compiler.  Maybe it runs the risk of folks ignoring the email if the
volume is too much, but do authors generally ignore 0day bot emails?
(I'd hope not).

Many of the warnings GCC has Clang does as well.
-Wimplicit-function-declaration is the most common warning I see in
triage, which developers would see regardless of toolchain had they
compiled first before pushing.  It might be interesting to see maybe
the intersection or common flags between GCC and Clang, and only email
Clang reports for warnings unique to clang?  I think CFLAGS can even
be passed into make invocations so you could do:
$ make CC=clang KBUILD_CFLAGS=<list of flags common to GCC and Clang;
-Wno-implicit-function-declaration -Wno-...>
such that any resulting warnings were unique to Clang.  I'd expect
such a list to quickly get stale over time though.
