Well... the answer to the posed question is, of course, "install gcc 5.1 or later"
(and even *that* is pretty damned ancient - some of us are chasing problems
with building the kernel with gcc 12.  gcc 5.1 was released on 4-22-2015).

The meta question is what the <expletive> you're running that 4.9.2 (released
on 10-30-2014) is still the compiler - and what *other* things on your machine
are severely backleveled, particularly security-relevant patches....
