kernel/trace/trace_clock.o:(.ARM.exidx+0x0): undefined reference to
kernel/trace/trace_clock.o:(.ARM.exidx+0x8): undefined reference to
kernel/trace/trace_clock.o:(.ARM.exidx+0x10): undefined reference to

I created a reduced test case at https://godbolt.org/z/gBQtAP

Basically, clang inserts

-fno-unwind-tables", which then results in unresolved references to
