I think that's the issue, I couldn't reproduce the issue until I
installed the 5.0-rc1 headers. This is the invocation of the script
(paths trimmed)

/tools/perf/arch/arm64/entry/syscalls//mksyscalltbl' 'gcc' 'gcc' /tools /tools/arch/arm64/include/uapi/asm/unistd.h > arch/arm64/include/generated/asm/syscalls.c


In tools/perf/arch/arm64/entry/syscalls/mksyscalltbl,

$hostcc -I $incpath/include/uapi -o $create_table_exe -x c -

This was the gcc command that was failing.
tools/arch/arm64/include/uapi/asm/unistd.h includes asm-generic/unistd.h
so I think that's what's leaking from the system.
