Thanks Sami, looks like this addresses:
Link: https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues/671
I tried adding `.arch armv8-a+lse` directives to all of the inline asm:
https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues/573#issuecomment-535098996
though that quickly ran aground in some failed assertion using the
alternatives system that I don't quite yet understand.

One thing to be careful about is that blankets the entire kernel in
`+lse`, allowing LSE atomics to be selected at any point. The
assembler directive in the header (or per inline asm block) is more
fine grained. I'm not sure that they would be guarded by the
alternative system. Maybe that's not an issue, but it is the reason I
tried to localize the assembler directive first.

Note that Clang really wants the target arch specified by either:
1. command line argument (as in this patch)
2. per function function attribute
3. per asm statement assembler directive

1 is the smallest incision.
