This breaks an allmodconfig build:

lib/ubsan.o: In function `get_signed_val':
ubsan.c:(.text.unlikely+0x13c): undefined reference to `__ashlti3'
ubsan.c:(.text.unlikely+0x144): undefined reference to `__ashrti3'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

so I'm going to drop it for now. My toolchain is:

gcc version 7.1.1 20170707 (Linaro GCC 7.1-2017.08)
