The only choice you have in gcc, is to use -I-, to construct:

 $(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc -I$(srctree)/arch/arm/boot/compressed -I- [...]

however, it's been marked as deprecated, but still usable as of today
snapshot of 4.7.0. Its replacement, -iquote, do not provide this
functionnality, that is to override the source file origin directory
as search directory for #include "...".
