The code is OK, but I'd like to make the log even clearer.


The commit subject
"kbuild: clang: Disable -Wunused-const-variable warnings"
sounds confusing.

-Wunused-const-variable was already disabled for clang
because it was implied by Wno-unused-variable.


So, this patch is effectively enabling -Wunused-variable, right?


How about something like follows?

------------------------->8---------------------------------------
kbuild: clang: disable unused variable warnings only when constant

Currently, GCC disables -Wunused-const-variable, but not
-Wunused-variable, so warns unused variables if they are
non-constant.

While, Clang does not warn unused variables at all regardless of
the const qualifier because -Wno-unused-const-variable is implied
by the stronger option -Wno-unused-variable.

Disable -Wunused-const-variable instead of -Wunused-variable so that
GCC and Clang work in the same way.
--------------------------->8--------------------------------------


If it is tedious to resend, shall I reword the log locally?
Let me your thought.
