commit: 1cf12e08bc4d50a76b80c42a3109c53d8794a0c9 sched/hotplug: Consolidate task migration on CPU unplug
date:   4 months ago
config: mips-randconfig-r004-20210228 (attached as .config)
compiler: clang version 13.0.0 ( 83bc7815c4235786111aa2abf7193292e4a602f5)
reproduce (this is a W=1 build):
        wget -O ~/bin/make.cross
        chmod +x ~/bin/make.cross
        # install mips cross compiling tool for clang build
        # apt-get install binutils-mips-linux-gnu
        git remote add linus
        git fetch --no-tags linus master
        git checkout 1cf12e08bc4d50a76b80c42a3109c53d8794a0c9
        # save the attached .config to linux build tree
        COMPILER_INSTALL_PATH=$HOME/0day COMPILER=clang make.cross ARCH=mips
