Subject: [Error after setting -Og] ‘__bad_copy_from’ declared with attribute error: copy source size is too small

Hi all,

I get a compile time error after setting -Og when compiling for the latest GitHub version.
I am using `make defconfig’ to get the default x86_64 config. But previously I did this in v4.4, 
it's fine.

Modification to Makefile:
KBUILD_CFLAGS  += -O2 $(call cc-disable-warning,maybe-uninitialized,)            
       -KBUILD_CFLAGS   += -O2                                                    
       +KBUILD_CFLAGS   += -Og                                                    

And error info:

Any help is appreciated!
