Ah, so this comes from these build failures in -next:
http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/buildresult/10875446/
http://kisskb.ellerman.id.au/kisskb/buildresult/10875446/

Indeed, SH2A-targets fail when built with a sh4-linux toolchain, as
sh4-linux-gcc doesn't understand -m2a-nofpu, so it's left out:

arch/sh/Makefile:
cflags-$(CONFIG_CPU_SH2A)               += $(call cc-option,-m2a,) \
                                           $(call cc-option,-m2a-nofpu,)

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

agree.

To summarize:
according to Kaz:
"For sh2a, configuring gcc with --with-multilib-list=m2a,m2a-nofpu
 and specifying -m2a-nofpu during compiling kernel would work."

and as Geert pointed out we already have:
arch/sh/Makefile:
cflags-$(CONFIG_CPU_SH2A)               += $(call cc-option,-m2a,) \
                                           $(call cc-option,-m2a-nofpu,)

so no kernel changes needed and gcc just needs to be reconfigured.
