Ingo,

Could you use my updated patch. I know it is still just a work around, but
your update broke my build. I use distcc which passes in "distcc" as gcc.
My distcc is self built and is not the same as the distribution gcc.

Ie, you have:

if ($arch eq "x86_64") {
$ld = "ld -m elf_x86_64";
$objdump = "objdump -M x86-64";
$objcopy = "objcopy -O elf64-x86-64";
$cc = "gcc -m64";
}

Where the $cc = "gcc" is not compatible on my system. I end up with a bad
build that causes ftrace to fail on bootup.
