Subject: [PATCH v2] raid6/ppc: Fix build for clang
Date: Fri,  2 Nov 2018 11:14:55 +1030	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20181102004455.10157-1-joel@jms.id.au> (raw)

We cannot build these files with clang as it does not allow altivec
instructions in assembly when -msoft-float is passed.

This is a workaround until the issue is resolved in clang.
