Subject: [PATCH] ARM: require GCC for FRAME_POINTER

To produce a meaningful backtrace with FRAME_POINTER enabled the
kernel needs a specific function prologue:
    mov    ip, sp
    stmfd    sp!, {fp, ip, lr, pc}
    sub    fp, ip, #4

To get to the required prologue gcc uses apcs and no-sched-prolog.
This compiler options are not available on clang, and clang is not
able to generate the required prologue. Make the FRAME_POINTER
config symbol dependent on GCC.
