This would appear to be related to the ld version check for VDSO
failing.

awk: /home/kisskb/slave/src/scripts/ld-version.sh: line 4: regular expression compile failed (missing '(')
.*)
/bin/sh: 1: [: -lt: unexpected operator

I.e. this line:
gsub(".*)", "");

appears to be trying to turn e.g. "GNU ld (Gentoo 2.25.1 p1.1) 2.25.1"
into " 2.25.1", so perhaps the bracket should be escaped. What version
of awk is it using? (GNU Awk 4.0.2 works for me).

Can somebody experiencing this please try:
${CROSS_COMPILE}ld --version | ./scripts/ld-version.sh

with the following patch, to see if it helps.

Thanks
James
