Subject: [PATCH] arm64: Restrict ARM64_BTI_KERNEL to clang 12.0.0 and newer
Date: Thu,  8 Jul 2021 17:06:27 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Commit 97fed779f2a6 ("arm64: bti: Provide Kconfig for kernel mode BTI")
disabled CONFIG_ARM64_BTI_KERNEL when CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was enabled and
compilign with clang because of warnings that occur because LLVM was not
emitting PAC/BTI instructions for compiler generated functions.

This was an adequate fix to avoid the warnings with allmodconfig until
commit 51c2ee6d121c ("Kconfig: Introduce ARCH_WANTS_NO_INSTR and
being selected with clang 12.0.0 and older because it does not support
the no_profile_instrument_function attribute. As a result,
CONFIG_ARM64_BTI_KERNEL gets enabled and there are more warnings of this

Rather than play whack-a-mole with the config options, just update this
condition to require clang 12.0.0, which should have all of the issues
ironed out.
