Masahiro,
Nathan is correct. Test for yourself; if you apply these two patches,
then apply:

diff --git a/scripts/Makefile.clang b/scripts/Makefile.clang
index 956603f56724..a1b46811bdc6 100644
--- a/scripts/Makefile.clang

scripts/Makefile.clang)
endif # SRCARCH

CLANG_FLAGS += --target=$(notdir $(CROSS_COMPILE:%-=%))
endif # CROSS_COMPILE
Then build as Nathan specified:
$ ARCH=arm64 make CC=clang LLVM_IAS=1 -j72 defconfig all
...
arch/arm64/Makefile:25: ld does not support --fix-cortex-a53-843419;
kernel may be susceptible to erratum
...
LD arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/vdso.so.dbg
ld: unrecognised emulation mode: aarch64linux
Supported emulations: elf_x86_64 elf32_x86_64 elf_i386 elf_iamcu
elf_l1om elf_k1om i386pep i386pe
make[1]: *** [arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/Makefile:56:
arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/vdso.so.dbg] Error 1
make: *** [arch/arm64/Makefile:193: vdso_prepare] Error 2

Nathan referred to --prefix, but in this failure, because
CROSS_COMPILE was never set, the top level Makefile set LD to:
452 LD = $(CROSS_COMPILE)ld
in this case `ld` in my path was my host x86 linker, which is not
correct for a cross compilation of arm64 target.

Perhaps we can somehow support "implicit CROSS_COMPILE" with just
CC=clang, and not LLVM=1, but I think it would be inflexible to
hardcode such target triple prefixes. What if someone has
arm-linux-gnueabi-as but not arm-linux-gnueabihf-as installed? That's
the point of CROSS_COMPILE in my opinion to provide such flexibility
at the cost of additional command line verbosity.

For the common case of LLVM=1 though, this series is a simplification.
If users want to specify CC=clang, then they MUST use CROSS_COMPILE
when cross compiling.

Please review the current approach and see if there's more I can
improve in a v3; otherwise I still think this series is good to go.
