$(origin LLVM_IAS) knows the difference.

make CC=clang            ->  $(origin LLVM_IAS) is 'undefined'
make CC=clang LLVM_IAS=  ->  $(origin LLVM_IAS) is 'command line'
LLVM_IAS= make CC=clang  ->  $(origin LLVM_IAS) is 'environment'




The following patch makes both LLVM_IAS= and LLVM_IAS=0
work for disabling the integrated assembler.



@@ -22,6 +22,9 @@ else
 CLANG_FLAGS    += --target=$(notdir $(CROSS_COMPILE:%-=%))
 endif # CROSS_COMPILE

+# The integrated assembler is enabled by default.
+LLVM_IAS ?= 1
+
 ifeq ($(LLVM_IAS),1)
 CLANG_FLAGS    += -integrated-as
 else






But, I am not pretty sure if it is a good idea...

Perhaps, it is better to require LLVM_IAS=0
as Khem mentioned.


Another way for avoiding ambiguity is, perhaps
LLVM_IAS_DISABLE=1 instead of LLVM_IAS=0.
