I saw this with gcc 7.3 on aarch64.  Oddly, this doesn't get flagged 
with gcc 8.x on x86_64; I don't have 7.x on my x86 box to try 
unfortunately.  However the fix seems pretty obvious, which is why I 
proposed it.

I don't mind doing additional tests if that's necessary, just that it 
will take a bit longer since I'll have to build gcc 7 branch for it.

I work for Linaro so I should be covered under Linaro's agreement.
