At some point, when clang generically compiles the kernel,
I believe it'd be good to remove the various bits that
are unusual like CONFIG_CC_HAS_ASM_GOTO in Makefile
and the scripts/ and the like.

This could help when compiling a specific .config on
different systems.

Maybe add the equivalent compiler-gcc.h #define below
even before the removals

(whatever minor/patchlevel appropriate)

/* same as gcc, this was present in clang-2.6 so we can assume it works
