SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/4] ubsan: Force -Wno-maybe-uninitialized only for GCC

Well this patch is not strictly necessary because Clang does not support
-Wmaybe-uninitialized anyways :) its flags are -Wuninitialized and
-Wsometimes-uninitialized so the warning stays enabled for UBSAN as it
stands.

However, something like this could still worthwhile because it would
save us one call to cc-disable-warning (yay micro optimizations).

Maybe it just does not need to have a whole new symbol, just make it

ubsan-cflags-$(CONFIG_CC_IS_GCC)

instead of

ubsan-cflags-$(CONFIG_UBSAN)

No strong opinions either way though.
