Hi Flavio, in the 18.11. stable branch, I had "fixed" the gcc9 warnings
in telemetry with 2ae7bca9594d ("mk: disable packed member pointer
warning for telemetry")

This patch in 18.11 branch is causing the following build error:

error: initialization discards ‘const’ qualifier from pointer target
type [-Werror=discarded-qualifiers]
  .opt_str = "--telemetry",

I'm inclined to just keep the existing existing patch in stable and not
apply this one. Or if you want to do a backport for 18.11 branch that is
ok too. WDYT?
