Linaro toolchain supports gcc plugins.

https://releases.linaro.org/components/toolchain/binaries/latest-7/arm-linux-gnueabihf/


kernel.org one supports it as well.

https://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/pub/tools/crosstool/

tools/ is out of scope of kbuild because it adopted a different (more
adhoc) build system.
I have no idea. Please talk to the kselftest maintainer.
