On ARM I had the same problem as it requires explicit arch flags. I 
therefore used this patch:

Subject: [PATCH] LTO: scripts/gcc-ld: LTO on ARM needs arch specific gcc flags

Otherwise the final link where code generation happens produces code
for the wrong ISA when the default CPU configured into gcc is not the
one we need.

Also display the actual command when invoked with "make V=1".
