commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=657704912814e83161e1886adf63a19e6c32b272
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Currently glibc 2.30 is build by default with Werror enabled but it
has only been tested with compiler version available at the time of
the release [1] (gcc 6.2 up to gcc 9.2.1). It's recommended to use
those version with glibc 2.30.

For the same reason why we remove Werror in packages's compiler
flags. Building with Werror is not bulletproof when we start
using a newer compiler that introduce new warnings.
This is the case here with gcc 10, as reported by Yegor Yefremov
[2].

Fixing compiler warnings would require backporting many patches [3]
not even backported by Glibc maintainers to the 2.30 stable
branch. Instead, disable Werror by using --disable-werror.
Most (if not all) gcc 10 warnings will be fixed with Glibc 2.31.
