Back in 2014, you contributed altera_sockit_defconfig to Buildroot.
Unfortunately, this defconfig no longer builds: the Linux kernel
version used is too old to build with gcc 5.x.
Do you still have access to this HW platform? If so, can you contribute
a patch to update the defconfig? If you're no longer interested by this
platform, we can also decide to remove its defconfig.
You need to move to kernel 3.18+ for compatibility with gcc5.x or
alternatively backport this commit (and any dependencies):

kernel: add support for gcc 5
We're missing include/linux/compiler-gcc5.h which is required now
because gcc branched off to v5 in trunk.
Just copy the relevant bits out of include/linux/compiler-gcc4.h,
no new code is added as of now.
This fixes a build error when using gcc 5.
