The check is executed once pr. kernel compile - or at least once pr.
line. The reson to use cc-ifversion is that we need to check for a
specific gcc version and not just support for a specific argument type.

That said - checking for a version is not as reliable as checking if a
certain feature is really supported but Arjan suggested testing for
version >= 4.2 should do it.
Also we do not have any helpers in kbuild to do so -that could be worked
out so we could do something almost as elegant as
$(call cc-ifversion ...)
