On Skylake platform, with native build, KNI kernel module crashes
because of the corrupted values passed to kernel module.

The corruption occurs because the userspace kni library works
unexpectedly. Compiler [1] is using AVX512 instructions and generated
binary is wrong [2].

It turned around gcc does its job correct, but gas is generating binary
wrong. And expected binutils 2.30, 2.31 & 2.31.1 are affected. Issue has
been fixed in binutils 2.32 with:
Commit x86: don't mistakenly scale non-8-bit displacements

AVX512 was already disabled with bintuils 2.30 [3], extending it to
2.31 & 2.31.1 too.

[1] gcc (GCC) 8.3.1 20190223 (Red Hat 8.3.1-2)

[2] gcc bug: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=90028

[3] Bugzilla ID 97 has the details.
