It does not fix the warning, I tested your patch.

It does fix this warning because -ffreestanding implies -fno-builtin,
which also solves the warning. LLVM has supported -ffreestanding since
at least 3.0.0. There are some parts of the kernel that are compiled
with this and it probably should be used in more places but it sounds
like there might be some good codegen improvements that are disabled
with it:
