This patch results in the following error for me.

error: arch/arm64/kvm/hyp/nvhe/kvm_nvhe.tmp.o: assertion elf.ehdr->e_ident[5] == 1 failed (lhs=2, rhs=1, line=250)

The problem is seen when trying to build aarch64 images in big endian
mode.

Te script used to reproduce the problem as well as bisect results are
attached.

Script used to reproduce the problem:

make-arm64 allmodconfig
echo "CONFIG_CPU_BIG_ENDIAN=y" >> .config
make-arm64 olddefconfig

rm -f arch/arm64/kvm/hyp/nvhe/kvm_nvhe.o
make-arm64 -j arch/arm64/kvm/hyp/nvhe/kvm_nvhe.o

where make-arm64 is:

make -j32 ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux- $*
