Right, due to fixing the dependency on !PARAVIRT, allyesconfig now does
a noinstr validation, and this is the result.

Boris was having a poke at the MCE stuff.

Fixes for those ^ should be in the rcu tree.

There were also a bunch of Xen ones that should be fixed in the Xen
tree, perhaps you've already pulled that.

Right, I recently ran into this and hacen't yet had time to look into
it. I suspect my normal build box doesn't have the GCC plugin crud
enabled or somesuch.

I think the GCC stackleak plugin needs fixing, specifically it needs a
function attribute such that it will not emit instrumentation in noinstr
functions. I'll go chase down the developer of that thing.
