Why use a cross compiler? With the obvious exception of UML, the Linux
kernel is not a Linux executable, so why should it need to be compiled with
a compiler which targets such?

The kernel compiles quite happily with compilers which aren't targetted
specifically at Linux -- the CODA compatibility cruft being the one
exception. I often just comment out the CODA includes from <linux/fs.h> to
get round the same problem.
