I've run into a couple of issues with this series:

1. I had to install libmpc-dev to get GCC_PLUGINS to appear, otherwise the
   hostcc check would silently fail. I guess that's a general observation,
   but it might be nice to print a message about the missing dependencies.

2. It breaks arm64 allmodconfig build. Log below.

Please can you take a look at the build failure? Otherwise, the patches
look good to me.
