No worries :) Thanks for the review.

Will do.

Oops, thanks!

The initial KBUILD_USERCFLAGS above is also used in KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS. I 
didn't think it would be wise to have USERCFLAGS from command line 
affect HOSTCFLAGS as well, since a use case might be to add 
cross-compilation flags in USERCFLAGS but not in HOSTCFLAGS. When 
Android kernel builds do get arm64 musl/bionic libc available, we will 
want it only for userprogs and not hostprogs.
