Subject[PATCH v2] x86: vdso: Use $LD instead of $CC to link
From
The vdso{32,64}.so can fail to link with CC=clang when clang tries to
find a suitable GCC toolchain to link these libraries with.

/usr/bin/ld: arch/x86/entry/vdso/vclock_gettime.o:
access beyond end of merged section (782)

This happens because the host environment leaked into the cross
compiler environment due to the way clang searches for suitable GCC
toolchains.

Clang is a retargetable compiler, and each invocation of it must
provide --target=<something> --gcc-toolchain=<something> to allow it
to find the correct binutils for cross compilation. These flags had
been added to KBUILD_CFLAGS, but the vdso code uses CC and not
KBUILD_CFLAGS (for various reasons) which breaks clang's ability to
find the correct linker when cross compiling.

Most of the time this goes unnoticed because the host linker is new
enough to work anyway, or is incompatible and skipped, but this cannot
be reliably assumed.

This change alters the vdso makefile to just use LD directly, which
bypasses clang and thus the searching problem. The makefile will just
use ${CROSS_COMPILE}ld instead, which is always what we want. This
matches the method used to link vmlinux.

This change drops references to DISABLE_LTO; this option doesn't seem to
be set anywhere, and not knowing what its possible values are, it's not
clear how to convert it from CC to LD flag.
