:= and += work in the same way in here.


As Rob said, HOST_EXTRACFLAGS is reset in each makefile
because HOST_EXTRACFLAGS is not export'ed.
(scripts/gcc-plugins/Makefile actually export's it, but it is wrong.)


Precisely speaking, HOST_EXTRACFLAGS is immediately expanded
if it is set by :=, whereas it is lazily expanded if it is
set by +=. But, there is no effective difference in this case.
