[PATCH v6 02/17] arm64: ensure the kernel is compiled for LP64

From: Andrew Pinski <apinski at cavium.com>

The kernel needs to be compiled as a LP64 binary for ARM64, even when
using a compiler that defaults to code-generation for the ILP32 ABI.
Consequently, we need to explicitly pass '-mabi=lp64' (supported on
gcc-4.9 and newer).
