commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=cbcf6174f5fee80bd824f81fccfa52477fea076f
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Even if gcc 8 is still maintained for some time (gcc 8.5 is pending),
switch to gcc 9.x since it has been released since 2019-05-03 and
gcc 10.x is available since 2020-05-07.

We have been having toolchains in the autobuilders with gcc
9.x for a while, so the vast majority of the problems should have
already been solved.
