Resent - meant for list.
Help please folks, I need someone with more knowledge with gcc and compiler
flags / settings.
I *think* what needs to be done is blacklists or some such. I don't think
this should be *my* responsibility to fix.
If it is.. then docker builds is back burnered for the unforeseeable
future. I simply do not have time right now to try and figure
this out. I accidentally overloaded myself with commitments. And holidays
are arriving soon to top things off.
It may very well be simple to fix...
Sorry, but I need help here.

OK, I am going to have to disagree here.

Proof in case:

libxml2 and libxslt are the problem which *is* external.
I tried removing the ecm flag for kdoctools but we still have asan errors

Someone needs to step up and help me out here as I do not have time to try
and figure out how to fix this mess.
It is a blocker for CI to move to docker (more builders yay!) which I think
everyone would like to see happen.
