[PATCH 0/7] LLVM: make x86_64 kernel build with clang.




This patch set is sufficient to get the x86_64 kernel to build
and boot correctly with clang-3.8 or greater.

The resulting build still has about 300 warnings, very few of
which appear to be significant. Most of them should be fixable
with some minor code refactoring although a few of them, such
as the complaints about implict conversions between enumerated
types may be candidates for just being disabled.

Michael Davidson (7):
  Makefile, LLVM: add -no-integrated-as to KBUILD_[AC]FLAGS
  Makefile, x86, LLVM: disable unsupported optimization flags
  x86, LLVM: suppress clang warnings about unaligned accesses
  x86, boot, LLVM: #undef memcpy etc in string.c
  x86, boot, LLVM: Use regparm=0 for memcpy and memset
  md/raid10, LLVM: get rid of variable length array
  crypto, x86, LLVM: aesni - fix token pasting
