Hmm, I was hessitating what to do. As we are past -rc1 it would be nicer
to just fix build issues on 4.10.2 instead of bumping, but judging from
the upstream patch series, more patches will be needed:

I checked upstream, and these patches have still not made it to the
4.10.x series, so moving to 4.11.x for gcc 8 support is probably the
cleanest solution after all.

Committed, thanks.
