We'd still want it for KBUILD_AFLAGS, too, just to be safe. Maybe a
one line comment to the effect of `# remove me once we can link as
-pie` would help us rip off this band-aid in the future? It's more
obvious that the added hunk can be reverted once -pie linkage is
achieved with the current patch; either are fine by me. Thanks!
