+ Denis and Galina who should know about the affected buildbots and whether it's fine to upgrade them or whether their configurations reflect some important use cases. Sylvestre should know if the release process for LLVM on Ubuntu/Debian relies on the older GCC toolchains somehow.

Hmm, i guess i should have mailed cfe-dev too. Doing that now.
On Debian Jessie, gcc 4.9.2-2 is available
On Debian Stretch, it is 6.3.0-18+deb9u1
Here, it is harder to use a more recent version of gcc, so, if we can keep 4.9 has minimal, this would be better for apt.llvm.org
I don't see Debian or Ubuntu updating to these version of gcc for a simple bug.
So, in general, users would have to upgrade their gcc version (which isn't always smooth).
