kbuild: make cc-version available in kbuild files

Move $(CC) support functions to Kbuild.include so they are available
in the kbuild files.
In addition the following was done:
	o as-option documented in Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt
	o Moved documentation to new section to match
	  new scope of functions
	o added cc-ifversion used to conditionally select a text string
	  dependent on actual $(CC) version
	o documented cc-ifversion
	o change so Kbuild.include is read before the kbuild file

to prerequisites are referenced with $(src) (because they are not
generated files).
--- 3.11 $(CC) support functions
The kernel may be build with several different versions of
$(CC), each supporting a unique set of features and options.
kbuild provide basic support to check for valid options for $(CC).
$(CC) is useally the gcc compiler, but other alternatives are
available.
as-option
as-option is used to check if $(CC) when used to compile
assembler (*.S) files supports the given option. An optional
second option may be specified if first option are not supported.
Example:
#arch/sh/Makefile
cflags-y += $(call as-option,-Wa$(comma)-isa=$(isa-y),)
In the above example cflags-y will be assinged the the option
-Wa$(comma)-isa=$(isa-y) if it is supported by $(CC).
The second argument is optional, and if supplied will be used
if first argument is not supported.
cc-option
cc-option is used to check if $(CC) support a given option, and not
supported to use an optional second option.
Example:
#arch/i386/Makefile
cflags-y += $(call cc-option,-march=pentium-mmx,-march=i586)
In the above example cflags-y will be assigned the option
-march=pentium-mmx if supported by $(CC), otherwise -march-i586.
The second argument to cc-option is optional, and if omitted
cflags-y will be assigned no value if first option is not supported.
cc-option-yn
cc-option-yn is used to check if gcc supports a given option
and return 'y' if supported, otherwise 'n'.
Example:
#arch/ppc/Makefile
biarch := $(call cc-option-yn, -m32)
aflags-$(biarch) += -a32
cflags-$(biarch) += -m32
In the above example $(biarch) is set to y if $(CC) supports the -m32
option. When $(biarch) equals to y the expanded variables $(aflags-y)
and $(cflags-y) will be assigned the values -a32 and -m32.
cc-option-align
gcc version >= 3.0 shifted type of options used to speify
alignment of functions, loops etc. $(cc-option-align) whrn used
as prefix to the align options will select the right prefix:
gcc < 3.00
cc-option-align = -malign
gcc >= 3.00
cc-option-align = -falign
Example:
CFLAGS += $(cc-option-align)-functions=4
In the above example the option -falign-functions=4 is used for
gcc >= 3.00. For gcc < 3.00 -malign-functions=4 is used.
cc-version
cc-version return a numerical version of the $(CC) compiler version.
The format is <major><minor> where both are two digits. So for example
gcc 3.41 would return 0341.
cc-version is useful when a specific $(CC) version is faulty in one
area, for example the -mregparm=3 were broken in some gcc version
even though the option was accepted by gcc.
Example:
#arch/i386/Makefile
cflags-y += $(shell \
if [ $(call cc-version) -ge 0300 ] ; then \
echo "-mregparm=3"; fi ;)
In the above example -mregparm=3 is only used for gcc version greater
than or equal to gcc 3.0.
cc-ifversion
cc-ifversion test the version of $(CC) and equals last argument if
version expression is true.
Example:
#fs/reiserfs/Makefile
EXTRA_CFLAGS := $(call cc-ifversion, -lt, 0402, -O1)
In this example EXTRA_CFLAGS will be assigned the value -O1 if the
$(CC) version is less than 4.2.
cc-ifversion takes all the shell operators:
-eq, -ne, -lt, -le, -gt, and -ge
The third parameter may be a text as in this example, but it may also
be an expanded variable or a macro.
