Well, I still want to make sure all 'randconfig' builds complete without
warnings, and without having to turn off the otherwise useful
stack overflow warnings.

One thing I noticed is that your patch removes the 'depends on
!COMPILE_TEST' check for GCC_PLUGIN_STRUCTLEAK_BYREF_ALL,
so if we add that back in, it would at least take care of the
allmodconfig and randconfig cases.

Right. I already had the use-after-scope stuff disabled for
build testing, using the same 'depends on !COMPILE_TEST'
check, so one more reason it did not make a difference.
