Not sure of your experiments for MTE, the kernel is built with clang but uses
the GNU assembler. The -Wa, option is passed down to the assembler (GNU) which
honors it.

Said that, I agree with Masahiro Yamada about the "-c" option to be used in
place of "-E" and on that sense I provided a patch to Amit last December which
should be integrated in the next series (Amit can confirm, I hope ;) ).
