Details

When I try building the linux package with [testing] enabled (using gcc-10.1.0-1 et al currently) using distcc, the build ends in an error. Complete log attached. Building without distcc ends in a successful build.

Note one must modify the PKGBUILD substituting `make all` with `make all CC=distcc CXX=distcc` or makepkg does not use distcc. As an aside, building with this modified line works as expected for previous kernel versions with gcc-9.3.0-x.

This task depends upon

I repeated the compilation step by hand (no makepkg) and found that it completed but ended in error code 2 which is I think what is breaking makepkg. Please see attached log. If I grep ERROR out of it, compilation fails on kvm_main.c here. I tried this 3 times now and in all 3 cases, the dies trying to build this file.

% zgrep ERROR compile_by_hand.log.gz

I get the same issue building linux-mainline from the AUR (makepkg or by hand).

@ghodgeuk - Thanks for pointing me to that patch. Per the comments on the patch which seems to be rejected upstream, I opted to modify the Arch config like this which built successfully. You can add this to the PKGBUILD:
sed -i -e 's/CONFIG_KVM_WERROR=y/# CONFIG_KVM_WERROR is not set/' ./.config

Perhaps @heftig wants to modify the config? Not sure what the "best" fix for the problem is honestly.

I decided on such a solution.

I don't consider distcc a supported configuration as the GCC plugins do not work. Otherwise this error would be suppressed by the structleak initialization.
