SubjectCCFOUND and more
Hi everyone.

Solving other things, I have realized that all that problem on fast
CC detection (CCFOUND) is easily solved by doing:
CC := $(.................)
instead of
CC = $(.........)
The find of the suitable CC command is repeated many times along a
kernel build. And CC is not anything that can change along a kernel
build. So former syntax solves all the problems, CC detection can
be so complex as you want because is done only once.

Same is valid for other Makefile variables:
CPP = $(CC) -E ===> CPP := $(CC) -E

(If you want to test how many shells are spawned when using CC, try
CC = $(shell echo "===== CC EVAL ===============" >&2; if ........
CC := $(shell echo "===== CC EVAL ===============" >&2; if .......

Is there something I am missing ?
