Maybe this triggers on certain config options set, or maybe due to new
gcc version? (I'm using gcc-12, I also likely saw while on gcc-11.)
It nevertheless is a helpful warning.

I just now tried `make defconfig` (default configuration based on
'x86_64_defconfig') and compiling with `make -j13 all`, and gcc doesn't
give any warning. (CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK isn't even listed in the
.config file produced, grep fails.)

The config on which I can reproduce the warning can be found here:
(It has 8969 lines, thus uploaded as a gist.)

This is a modification of a config found on syzkaller, which I was using
to compile and test some bug. I had noticed the gcc warning earlier while
on similar detours and usually ignored it, but now I finally took a look.

I tested compiling with it 5 times (`make clean` and `make -j13 all`),
and gcc gave the warning in all attempts. I also tried `make -j1 all`,
which also had gcc spitting out the warning, so it cannot be any race.

Yes, that's where blaming the file leads me to.
