That's a good question.
As I wrote in my commit message it has to do with some specifics of toolchain headers
configuration. But I'm not really sure what triggers this.

I mean I spent quite some time looking at differences between very similar build trees
in one of which this issue happens but not in another but didn't get to any

And given there's an upstream fix for that issue I didn't want to invest more time into
this investigation, sorry.
