So CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_COMPRESSED is required to reproduce the bug, right?

I turned on CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO_COMPRESSED in my config and got a bunch of
build failures.

ld: drivers/crypto/virtio/virtio_crypto_algs.o: unable to initialize 
decompress status for section .debug_info
ld: drivers/crypto/virtio/virtio_crypto_algs.o: unable to initialize 
decompress status for section .debug_info

...

The 'ld' in my system:

$ ld -V
GNU ld version 2.30-74.el8
   Supported emulations:
    elf_x86_64
    elf32_x86_64
    elf_i386
    elf_iamcu
    i386linux
    elf_l1om
    elf_k1om
    i386pep
    i386pe
$

Do you know what is the issue here?
