Subject[PATCH] arm64: disable -fsanitize=shadow-call-stack for big-endian
clang-11 and earlier do not support -fsanitize=shadow-call-stack
in combination with -mbig-endian, but the Kconfig check does not
pass the endianess flag, so building a big-endian kernel with
this fails at build time:

clang: error: unsupported option '-fsanitize=shadow-call-stack' for target 'aarch64_be-unknown-linux'

Change the Kconfig check to let Kconfig figure this out earlier
and prevent the broken configuration. I assume this is a bug
in clang that needs to be fixed, but we also have to work
around existing releases.
