Perhaps it would be nice to clarify the "level of support" for
`CC=clang` too, in particular long-term when `LLVM=1` works for all
architectures.

In other words, is `CC=clang` going to remain supported/maintained, or
it will be something that will still compile/boot but not expected to
be used by anyone in production, or dropped altogether (not the `CC`
option itself, of course, I refer to the mix of toolchains)?

Thanks,

Cheers,
Miguel
