Hi Geert, Arnd

Need some guidance here.

I'm thinking how to address this correctly.

This is due to the older version of compiler. The fix itself is trivial - add an
"call as-instr" construct in Makefile to get -DARC_TOOLS_SUPPORT_LLOCKD

However the atomic64 API variant (CONFIG_GENERIC_ATOMIC64 or arch native) which
gets included in build comes from Kconfig (ISA supports them or not). How do we
tie the Makefile info into the Kconfig.

We could trigger a build failure for invalid combinations of GENERIC_ATOMIC64 and
ARC_TOOLS_SUPPORT_LLOCKD but that would be less than ideal out of box experience.

Or the simpler solution is that kisskb upgrades the ARC GNU compiler ;-)
