Here we are:

Build results:
	total: 154 pass: 153 fail: 1
Failed builds:
Qemu test results:
	total: 471 pass: 470 fail: 1
Failed tests:

riscv32:allmodconfig still reports

cc1: error: '6152' is not a valid offset in '-mstack-protector-guard-offset='

The arm image doesn't boot because of a regression in flash code.
The fix is in the pending-fixes branch and should hopefully find its
way into mainline soon.

There is also still the following warning all over the place.

alg: self-tests for drbg_nopr_hmac_sha512 (stdrng) failed (rc=-22)
WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 57 at crypto/testmgr.c:5652 alg_test.part.0+0x12c/0x430

The riscv32 boot problem has been fixed.

The riscv compile problem is seen randomly (roughly every other build)
are enabled. It looks like the problem may be difficult to reproduce
for others, and I am not sure if it will be fixed anytime soon.
Since the problem may hide other compile problems, I am going to
disable CONFIG_GCC_PLUGIN_RANDSTRUCT in future riscv test builds.
The problem won't be gone, but I will no longer report it.

Similar, the warning about drbg_nopr_hmac_sha512 is only seen if crypto
self tests are enabled and CONFIG_CRYPTO_SHA512 is not enabled. The fix
is queued in -next but not in pending-fixes, meaning it might not make it
into v5.14. Since the warning is distracting and may hide other problems,
I'll force-enable CONFIG_CRYPTO_SHA512 in future test builds and no longer
report this warning.
