[PATCH 4/4] Add warning for non-constant memory models

From: Andi Kleen <>

Non constant memory models drop HLE attribute bits. Since we had
problems with this even in gcc code itself, like libstdc++ <atomic>
passing variables when not optimizing, add a warning for this case.

Passed bootstrap and test on x86_64-linux.

	PR target/55947
	* gcc/builtins.c (get_memmodel): Warn for non constant
	memory model.
