Subject[PATCH 2/2] Makefile: drop CROSS_COMPILE for LLVM=1 LLVM_IAS=1
We get constant feedback that the command line invocation of make is too
long. CROSS_COMPILE is helpful when a toolchain has a prefix of the
target triple, or is an absolute path outside of $PATH, but it's mostly
redundant for a given ARCH.

If CROSS_COMPILE is not set, simply set --target= for CLANG_FLAGS,

Previously, we'd cross compile via:
$ ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linxu-gnu make LLVM=1 LLVM_IAS=1
$ ARCH=arm64 make LLVM=1 LLVM_IAS=1

Signed-off-by: Nick Desaulniers <>
Changes RFC -> v1:
* Rebase onto linux-kbuild/for-next
* Keep full target triples since missing the gnueabi suffix messes up
32b ARM. Drop Fangrui's sugguested by tag. Update commit message to
drop references to arm64.
* Flush out TODOS.
* Add note about -EL/-EB, -m32/-m64.
* Add note to Documentation/.
