Please also keep in mind that there has been a lot of discussion about
this very subject. The resume is that libgcc.a probably shouldn't be
linked into the kernel, but the kernel should provide it's own version

This is specifically important to architectures where the instruction
set architecture got extended at some point (which is true for most
archs, though...)  Consider as an example a compiler targeted for
i686-pc-linux-gnu. Now consider you're building for an original i486,
using -m486 etc.  The compiler's output _will_ work on a i486, but can
you be 100% sure that the libgcc function (which were already
cross-compiled by this very i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc compiler!) linked into
the kernel don't contain any i686 instructions?

You cannot. Some kernels (even on different architectures) didn't work
because of this very issue.
