Do you have a reference for this? I think this might have been true
in the past, but I don't think it's true for any version of gcc we
support for building Linux.

If it's still true, we have many other places that need to be changed,
e.g., omap_secure_ram_reserve_memblock(), r8a7779_register_twd(),
sh73a0_register_twd(), rtc_mips_set_time(), ...
