Subject[PATCH 03/13] Makefile: Generate CLANG_FLAGS even in GCC builds
Date
From: Miguel Ojeda <ojeda@kernel.org>

To support Rust under GCC-built kernels, we need to save the flags that
would have been passed if the kernel was being compiled with Clang.

The reason is that bindgen -- the tool we use to generate Rust bindings
to the C side of the kernel -- relies on libclang to parse C. Ideally:

- bindgen would support a GCC backend (requested at [1]),

- or the Clang driver would be perfectly compatible with GCC,
including plugins. Unlikely, of course, but perhaps a big
subset of configs may be possible to guarantee to be kept
compatible nevertheless.

This is also the reason why GCC builds are very experimental and some
configurations may not work (e.g. GCC_PLUGIN_RANDSTRUCT). However,
we keep GCC builds working (for some example configs) in the CI
to avoid diverging/regressing further, so that we are better prepared
for the future when a solution might become available.
