[PATCH] ARC: build: Try to guess CROSS_COMPILE with cc-cross-prefix

From: Alexey Brodkin
Date: Mon Jun 03 2019 - 02:35:10 EST

For a long time we used to hard-code CROSS_COMPILE prefix
for ARC until it started to cause problems, so we decided to
solely rely on CROSS_COMPILE externally set by a user:
commit 40660f1fcee8 ("ARC: build: Don't set CROSS_COMPILE in arch's Makefile").

While it works perfectly fine for build-systems where the prefix
gets defined anyways for us human beings it's quite an annoying
requirement especially given most of time the same one prefix
"arc-linux-" is all what we need.

It looks like finally we're getting the best of both worlds:
1. W/o cross-toolchain we still may install headers, build .dtb etc
2. W/ cross-toolchain get the kerne built with only ARCH=arc

Inspired by [1] & [2].

A side note: even though "cc-cross-prefix" does its job it pollutes
console with output of "which" for all the prefixes it didn't manage to find
a matching cross-compiler for like that:
| # ARCH=arc make defconfig
| which: no arceb-linux-gcc in (~/.local/bin:~/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin)
| *** Default configuration is based on 'nsim_hs_defconfig'
