Ok, lets drop omit-frame-pointer.

But then, lets do more radical step and drop
KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS & HOST_EXTRACFLAG in this patch:

-ifdef CROSS_COMPILE
+TPROGS_CFLAGS += -Wall -O2
+TPROGS_CFLAGS += -Wmissing-prototypes
+TPROGS_CFLAGS += -Wstrict-prototypes
-else
-TPROGS_LDLIBS := $(KBUILD_HOSTLDLIBS)
-TPROGS_CFLAGS += $(KBUILD_HOSTCFLAGS) $(HOST_EXTRACFLAGS)
-endif

At least it allows to use same options always for both, native and cross.

I verified on native x86_64, arm64 and arm and cross for arm and arm64,
but should work for others, at least it can be tuned explicitly and
no need to depend on KBUILD and use "cross" fork here.
