Just a note.

In case of cross-compiling, not only ARCH but also CROSS_COMPILE
must be passed when you do "make *config".

In this merge window, some compiler option tests are being moved
from Makefiles to the Kconfig phase.

People tend to set "export CROSS_COMPILE=..."
in their build environment.
I have not received any complaint about this change so far.
