Subject: [PATCH v5 05/18] compiler/gcc: Raise minimum GCC version for kernel builds to 4.8
Date: Mon, 11 May 2020 21:41:37 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200511204150.27858-6-will@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200511204150.27858-1-will@kernel.org>

It is very rare to see versions of GCC prior to 4.8 being used to build
the mainline kernel. These old compilers are also known to have codegen
issues which can lead to silent miscompilation:

https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58145

Raise the minimum GCC version to 4.8 for building the kernel and remove
some tautological Kconfig dependencies as a consequence.
