When trying to build a DKMS package from the AUR I found the following problem:

cc1: error: incompatible gcc/plugin versions
cc1: error: fail to initialize plugin ./scripts/gcc-plugins/

(this was with hid-lg-g710-plus-dkms-git in the AUR). I was able to fix this by rebuilding the "linux" and "linux-headers" packages. Was the in linux 5.2.11.arch1-1 compiled with a GCC release other than 9.1.0? Or does this depend on some other package update? I'm using testing if that matters.

This task depends upon

One can reproduce this problem as follows:

1) echo 'int main() { return 0; }' > test.c
2) gcc -fplugin=/usr/src/linux-5.2.11.arch1/scripts/gcc-plugins/ test.c
