White-listing the fixed compiler version should be safe though, and
that should pretty much fix things for community distros fairly
quickly.  For enterprise distros, once the compiler is patched, their
kernel sources could also be hacked to add a distro-specific version
whitelist.  This would all be fixed in 4.9.2, right?
