Subject: [PATCH] ubsan: disable unsigned-integer-overflow sanitizer with clang

From: Arnd Bergmann <>

Building ubsan kernels even for compile-testing introduced these
warnings in my randconfig environment:

crypto/blake2b_generic.c:98:13: error: stack frame size of 9636 bytes in function 'blake2b_compress' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]
static void blake2b_compress(struct blake2b_state *S,
crypto/sha512_generic.c:151:13: error: stack frame size of 1292 bytes in function 'sha512_generic_block_fn' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]
static void sha512_generic_block_fn(struct sha512_state *sst, u8 const *src,
lib/crypto/curve25519-fiat32.c:312:22: error: stack frame size of 2180 bytes in function 'fe_mul_impl' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]
static noinline void fe_mul_impl(u32 out[10], const u32 in1[10], const u32 in2[10])
lib/crypto/curve25519-fiat32.c:444:22: error: stack frame size of 1588 bytes in function 'fe_sqr_impl' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]
static noinline void fe_sqr_impl(u32 out[10], const u32 in1[10])

Further testing showed that this is caused by

The one in blake2b immediately overflows the 8KB stack area on 32-bit
architectures, so better ensure this never happens by making this
option gcc-only.
