No worries! I want to get it right, can you share your methodology?

I saw from some other message that you're doing
make CC="ccache gcc" allmodconfig
make CC="ccache gcc" -j 64 W=1 C=1

Is that the right sequence? did you start with a make mrproper as well?
I may have missed some drivers when I did this:
make allyesconfig
make menuconfig
<turn on all "Ethernet Drivers" = m manually>

but I'd like to target the actual job you're running and use that as
the short-term goal.

Also, if you have any comments about the removal of the lvalue from
some of the register read operations, I figure that is the riskiest
part of all this.
