That's unfortunate, but it could be even worse. My experience with creducing 
crashes is that the process can take up to several days. In this case, however, 
we know what changes cause the crash and it should be possible to construct the 
test case manually instead of creducing it.

I wouldn't expect buildbots to have been upgraded without someone doing this on 
purpose. If you have the list of buildbots that crashed, you could look at 
their recent logs to figure out which GCC version they are using now. It 
*might* be fine to require a patched version of GCC, but in that case you would 
have to:
0. Ask llvm-dev+cfe-dev whether anyone has concerns in raising the minimum 
required version of GCC

1. Fix the documentation, in particular this list: and these instructions:
2. Get buildbot maintainers to upgrade their GCC to at least the new required 

An alternative would be to try working around the bug.
