Commit Message

Masahiro Yamada March 24, 2020, 8:48 a.m. UTC
We raise the minimal supported binutils version from time to time.
The last bump was commit 1fb12b35e5ff ("kbuild: Raise the minimum
required binutils version to 2.21").

We need to keep these as-instr checks because binutils 2.21 does not
support them.

I hope this will be a good hint which one can be dropped when we
bump the minimal binutils version next time.

As for the Clang/LLVM builds, we require very new LLVM version,
so the LLVM integrated assembler supports all of them.
