From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

Separating compiler-clang.h from compiler-gcc.h inadventently dropped the
definitions of the three HAVE_BUILTIN_BSWAP macros, which requires falling
back to the open-coded version and hoping that the compiler detects it.

Since all versions of clang support the __builtin_bswap interfaces,
add back the flags and have the headers pick these up automatically.

This results in a 4% improvement of compilation speed for arm defconfig.

Note: it might also be worth revisiting which architectures set
CONFIG_ARCH_USE_BUILTIN_BSWAP for one compiler or the other, today
this is set on six architectures (arm32, csky, mips, powerpc, s390,
x86), while another ten architectures define custom helpers (alpha,
arc, ia64, m68k, mips, nios2, parisc, sh, sparc, xtensa), and the rest
(arm64, h8300, hexagon, microblaze, nds32, openrisc, riscv) just get
the unoptimized version and rely on the compiler to detect it.

A long time ago, the compiler builtins were architecture specific, but
nowadays, all compilers that are able to build the kernel have correct
implementations of them, though some may not be as optimized as
the inline asm versions.

The patch that dropped the optimization landed in v4.19, so as discussed
it would be fairly safe to backport this revert to stable kernels to
the 4.19/5.4/5.10 stable kernels, but there is a remaining risk for
regressions, and it has no known side-effects besides compile speed.
