cgcc is a gcc wrappr that calls sparse. I just trie quickly to patch
Makefile to run cgcc instead of gcc as HOSTCC an it seems to work:

HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:117:5: warning: symbol 'insert_extra_deps' was not declared. Should it be static?
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:118:6: warning: symbol 'target' was not declared. Should it be static?
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:119:6: warning: symbol 'depfile' was not declared. Should it be static?
scripts/basic/fixdep.c:120:6: warning: symbol 'cmdline' was not declared. Should it be static?

But then I run into the known cgcc bug that it also calls sparse when
called for linking. Which reminds me that I need to go back and fix
that.
