Subject: [PATCH] ARM: disable FUNCTION_TRACER when building with Clang

Clang needs "-meabi gnu" flag to emit calls to "__gnu_mcount_nc".
Otherwise, it inserts calls to undefined "mcount".

  kernel/softirq.o: In function `_local_bh_enable':
  ...
  undefined reference to `mcount'

"-meabi gnu" resolves link failures.  However, Clang does not implement
calls to "__gnu_mcount_nc" correctly.  It does not save the link
register on the stack, which corrupts the stack.  The resulting kernel
does not boot.

Disable FUNCTION_TRACER support when building with Clang.
