There is a build error with s390 builds.

arch/s390/kernel/nospec-branch.c: In function 'nospec_auto_detect':
arch/s390/kernel/nospec-branch.c:84:19: error:
	invalid storage class for function 'spectre_v2_setup_early'

arch/s390/kernel/nospec-branch.c:96:27: error:
	initializer element is not constant

and more. The file has merge damage in function nospec_auto_detect().
Culprit is commit 91788fcb21d0 ("s390/speculation: Support 'mitigations='
cmdline option"). That patch is in v4.14.119, so you'll have to patch
it up manually. Example patch (compile tested) below.
