Subject[PATCH 4.9 40/61] Makefile: Fix GCC_TOOLCHAIN_DIR prefix for Clang cross compilation
From: Fangrui Song <>

commit ca9b31f6bb9c6aa9b4e5f0792f39a97bbffb8c51 upstream.

When CROSS_COMPILE is set (e.g. aarch64-linux-gnu-), if
$(CROSS_COMPILE)elfedit is found at /usr/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-elfedit,
GCC_TOOLCHAIN_DIR will be set to /usr/bin/. --prefix= will be set to
/usr/bin/ and Clang as of 11 will search for both
$(prefix)aarch64-linux-gnu-$needle and $(prefix)$needle.

GCC searchs for $(prefix)aarch64-linux-gnu/$version/$needle,
$(prefix)aarch64-linux-gnu/$needle and $(prefix)$needle. In practice,
$(prefix)aarch64-linux-gnu/$needle rarely contains executables.

To better model how GCC's -B/--prefix takes in effect in practice, newer
Clang (since
only searches for $(prefix)$needle. Currently it will find /usr/bin/as
instead of /usr/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-as.

Set --prefix= to $(GCC_TOOLCHAIN_DIR)$(notdir $(CROSS_COMPILE))
(/usr/bin/aarch64-linux-gnu-) so that newer Clang can find the
appropriate cross compiling GNU as (when -no-integrated-as is in
