gcc-8 shows a warning for the x86 oprofile code that copies per-cpu
data from CPU 0 to all other CPUs, which when building a non-SMP
kernel turns into a memcpy() with identical source and destination
pointers:

arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c: In function 'mux_clone':
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c:285:2: error: 'memcpy' source argument is the same as destination [-Werror=restrict]
  memcpy(per_cpu(cpu_msrs, cpu).multiplex,
  ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
         per_cpu(cpu_msrs, 0).multiplex,
         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
         sizeof(struct op_msr) * model->num_virt_counters);
         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c: In function 'nmi_setup':
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c:466:3: error: 'memcpy' source argument is the same as destination [-Werror=restrict]
arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c:470:3: error: 'memcpy' source argument is the same as destination [-Werror=restrict]

I have analyzed a number of such warnings now: some are valid and the
gcc warning is welcome. Others turned out to be false-positives, and
gcc was changed to not warn about those any more. This is a corner case
that is a false-positive but the gcc developers feel it's better to keep
warning about it.

In this case, it seems best to work around it by telling gcc
a little more clearly that this code path is never hit with
an IS_ENABLED() configuration check. Cc:stable as we also want
old kernels to build cleanly with gcc-8.
