I assume you'll see the same thing if you try to build the main line 
(openjdk/jdk on github, jdk/jdk on hg). JDK-8234362 [1] may be the same 
issue. So I don't think this is anything specific to the loom repo and 
we should probably try to get it fixed in the main line to help those 
that build with gcc 10 or 10.1.
