I see no use of HOSTCOMPLIER anywhere in this patchset not in the kernel. Can we drop this?

Likewise - COMPILER seems unsued- can it be dropped?

Except that COMPILER is used here. But this does not warrant the export.

Is this really needed today?
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=717713 suggest that this is default.

> +KBUILD_CPPFLAGS += $(call cc-option,-Wno-unknown-warning-option,)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=731316 seems to suggest this is default

Is it really justified to disable these warnings?
# of warnign for a defconfig build would be a nice figure to judge from.

Same with this.

Should we fix modpost?
