Thanks for confirming that this works with the above patch.

The integrated assembler and this option are more-or-less orthogonal
to each other. One can still use the GNU assembler with PGO. If you're
having an issue, it may be related to ClangBuiltLinux issue #1250.

I know Nick did several tests with PGO. He may have looked into it
already, but we can check.

Yes.

One of my tests was with the integrated assembler enabled. Are you
finding issues with it?

The problem with using top-of-tree clang is that it's not necessarily
stable. You could try using the clang 11.x release (changing the
"CLANG_VERSION >= 120000" in kernel/pgo/Kconfig/ to "CLANG_VERSION >=
110000").
