FWIW, there was some discussion about gcc 8.1 issues on the kernel
But, it seems the problems they mention are just warnings, annoying
but they don't actually break anything.
There are some gcc 8.1 kernel patches here:
The one of interest are the top two with "Support GCC 8" in the title.
But, I think you'll be more interested in the other set of
GCC 8 patches here:
two files in the kernel source are changed:
So, there is your pager.c problem.
Looking at the patch code, it seems there are/were potential problems
in the kernel code which gcc 8.1 detects and warns (or errors) about.
But, gcc 8 itself isn't the cause of these issues.
