ARM: 9156/1: drop cc-option fallbacks for architecture selection
Naresh and Antonio ran into a build failure with latest Debian armhf compilers, with lots of output like tmp/ccY3nOAs.s:2215: Error: selected processor does not support `cpsid i' in ARM mode As it turns out, $(cc-option) fails early here when the FPU is not selected before CPU architecture is selected, as the compiler option check runs before enabling -msoft-float, which causes a problem when testing a target architecture level without an FPU: cc1: error: '-mfloat-abi=hard': selected architecture lacks an FPU Passing e.g. -march=armv6k+fp in place of -march=armv6k would avoid this issue, but the fallback logic is already broken because all supported compilers (gcc-5 and higher) are much more recent than these options, and building with -march=armv5t as a fallback no longer works. The best way forward that I see is to just remove all the checks, which also has the nice side-effect of slightly improving the startup time for 'make'. The -mtune=marvell-f option was apparently never supported by any mainline compiler, and the custom Codesourcery gcc build that did support is now too old to build kernels, so just use -mtune=xscale unconditionally for those. This should be safe to apply on all stable kernels, and will be required in order to keep building them with gcc-11 and higher.
