Subject: [PATCH v3] kbuild: Fix -Wimplicit-fallthrough=5 error for GCC 5.x
 and 6.x

-Wimplicit-fallthrough=5 was under cc-option because it was only
available in GCC 7.x and newer so the build is now broken for GCC 5.x
and 6.x:

gcc: error: unrecognized command line option '-Wimplicit-fallthrough=5';
did you mean '-Wno-fallthrough'?

Fix this by moving -Wimplicit-fallthrough=5 under cc-option.

Fixes: dee2b702bcf0 ("kconfig: Add support for -Wimplicit-fallthrough")

Co-developed-by: Nathan Chancellor <>

Changes in v3:
 - Keep the original CC_IS_GCC part of the test[1].
   Link: [1]

Changes in v2:
 - Add Fixes tag.
