Currently, in order to build the compat VDSO with Clang, this format
has to be used:

  PATH=${BIN_FOLDER}:${PATH} make CC=clang

Prior to the addition of this file, this format would also be

  make CC=${BIN_FOLDER}/clang

This is because the vdso32 Makefile uses cc-name instead of CC. After
this path, CC will still evaluate to clang for the first case as
expected but now the second case will use the specified Clang, rather
than the host's copy, which may not be compatible as shown below.

/usr/bin/as: unrecognized option '-mfloat-abi=soft'
clang-6.0: error: assembler command failed with exit code 1

Hi everyone,

I noticed this issue when building the Pixel 2's kernel. Since this
is a supplement to, I
was instructed by Mark to push it here. I could not find a public git
tree for this patch, I am not sure if it has been applied or not so I
couldn't add a fixes tag. If there are any other issues, please let me
