[PATCH] backends: Ignore GCC8 -Wpacked-not-aligned for m68k_corenote.c.

Tue Oct 24 12:35:00 GMT 2017


The GCC8 -Wpacked-not-aligned warns if a structure field with explicit
padding in a packed structure will be misaligned. m68k prstatus core
notes are described by a packed structure which has such aligned structure
fields.
