Ubuntu 14.04 is shipped with GCC 4.8 and this GCC isn't supported long time ago.
For example https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/196873 removed the GCC 4.8
workaround from bmalloc.

I tried this patch on r196872 and got another build error:
../../Source/JavaScriptCore/ftl/FTLLazySlowPathCall.h:51:1: warning: control reaches end of non-void function [-Wreturn-type]

FTLLazySlowPathCall.h was added by https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/190860
4 months ago and wasn't touched ever since then.

It seems GCC 4.8 build is completely broken and many workarounds should
be added to make it work again. Is there anybody who is interested to
do it?

I would say we should go ahead and try to forget GCC 4.8.
