I will test with or without CONFIG_AEABI like Matthias asked and I will
implement your Kconfig suggestion if it passes all of my tests. The
reason that I did it this way is because I didn't want a user to end up
with a non-booting kernel since -meabi gnu works with older versions of
clang at build time, the issue happens at boot time but the Kconfig
suggestion + cc-option should fix that.

I should have a v2 out this evening.

Cheers,
Nathan
