What do you mean by 'problematic' ?

I see no build error in
arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/Makefile, at least.

Clang uses BFD linker by default,
which may not match to the $(LD) passed in.

Is this what you mean?

Hmm, $(LD) might be a full path.

Looks like Clang can take a full-path for -fuse-ld=,
but does it work for GCC?
