Well... somehow I failed to notice those warning when I initially tested 
the patch. Sorry about that.

Now that I do see those warnings, that patch just needs the following to 
"fix" them the way they just like we already do for a Thumb2 build:

diff --git a/arch/arm/Makefile b/arch/arm/Makefile

New patch submitted.
