Yeah, I always question the relevance of this argument because distros:

* backport fixes for the compiler so gcc-4.8 in the distro is not always
upstream gcc-4.8

* they build the distro kernel with that compiler and former is
something old.

Yeah, it can happen that some backported patch has trouble building with
the distro compiler but that is kinda seldom.

IMHO, of course.
