Odds are you might have missed a build option for your system. Can you
go back to your 4.8.y .config file and look at the new options to be
sure that there was not one for the Renesas hardware you have?
Also, 4.9 is really old, it's recommended you use something more modern,
like 4.14 or even better yet, 4.15.
