Subject: [PATCH v3 1/2] retpolines: Enable retpoline support only when compiler support it
Date: Fri, 2 Nov 2018 01:45:41 -0700 (PDT)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cca0cb20-f9e2-4094-840b-fb0f8810cd34@default> (raw)

Since retpoline capable compilers are widely available, make
CONFIG_RETPOLINE hard depend on it. This is achieved by breaking
the build early and showing an error like below:

"arch/x86/Makefile:226: *** You are building kernel with non-retpoline
compiler, please update your compiler..  Stop."

[peterz@infradead.org: initial suggestion]
