I see that after our discussion about the carl9170 change in this
thread following your patch: <https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/8/14/291>

you decided the best way to address our requirements, was to "drop"
your patch from the series, instead of just implementing the requested 
changes. :(

Just a parting note for your consideration:

Since 5.7 [0], it has become rather easy to also compile the linux 
kernel with clang and the LLVM Utilities.
<https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/kbuild/llvm.html>

I hope this information can help you to see beyond that one-unamed 
"compiler" bias there... I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Christian
