It looks like there was a follow up fix for that workaround, maybe that
resolves this issue as well?

https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/common/+/cc7f7a84191f5defc2ea4633eeea4acb4486b549

No, the file that the build error originates from (entry_64.S) is only
built on x86_64.

That hack was reverted once the toolchain was upgraded:
