I believe that there is a patch in Gerrit for fixing the GCC 8 compiler issues.  Testing and review of the patch is welcome.

Because checking for various kernel features requires starting a small kernel module compile each time, which is slow.  If you have time to investigate and optimize, that would be much appreciated.
