Subject: [PATCH v2 0/7] Compiler Attributes: cover letter

Hi all,

This is a quick cover letter for the series, explaining the
differences between v1-v2.

Added "features" of the patch series:

  * Added direct URL links for all attributes to gcc & clang docs.

  * Added proper support for gcc 4.8 and 4.9 (i.e. for assume_aligned
and no_sanitize_address).

  * Added the reason for each optional attribute to be so, for future reference.

  * Removed some __CHECKER__ tests

  * Removed __deprecated_for_modules

  * Removed noinline and noclone inside notrace since we are now post gcc 4.6

Modified v1 -> v2:

  * Moved quite a few things out of the patch into 1-6, so that the
7th is easier to read.

  * Sorted them all (whether they are optional or not) by attribute name
    (this actually puts some similar ones in the same group, e.g.
format and unused
    and I think it may be the best of both worlds).

  * Moved __must_be_array out of compiler_types.h to compiler.h (since
it is not really used as a attribute).

I might be forgetting something. Also, note that I have not
compile-tested as much as last time, so please consider it untested
for the moment. Take a look!
