This causes compiler spew for me:

  warning: switch -mcpu=cortex-a15 conflicts with -march=armv7-a switch

Removing -march=armv7-a from there makes it quiet.

Also, it's sort of feels wrong to have -mcpu in a place where
we're exclusively doing -march. Perhaps the fallback should be
bog standard -march=armv7-a? (or the fallback for that one
"-march=armv5t -Wa$(comma)-march=armv7-a")?
