It looks like you forgot to pass --target=aarch64-linux-gnu to clang here,
which produces a build failure. This is the output with the added flag:

Generally I'd say that's a bit too new for a minimum version. On the other
hand, most distros I could find for arm64 have at least 2.25 or later,
the oldest
one I found being Debian Jessie. Ubuntu Trusty (14.04) was using 2.24 but
has its end of support date this month, after five years.

However, there are probably still cross-compile toolchains around that use
older aarch64-binutils, so it probably hurts someone.
