Subject: [PATCH v2 8/9] x86: add comments about the binutils version to support code in as-instr
Date: Tue, 24 Mar 2020 09:13:57 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200324001358.4520-9-masahiroy@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200324001358.4520-1-masahiroy@kernel.org>

We raise the minimal supported binutils version from time to time.
The last bump was commit 1fb12b35e5ff ("kbuild: Raise the minimum
required binutils version to 2.21").

We need to keep these as-instr checks because binutils 2.21 does not
support them.

I hope this will be a good hint which one can be dropped when we
bump the minimal binutils version next time.

As for the Clang/LLVM builds, we require very new LLVM version,
so the LLVM integrated assembler supports all of them.
