I'm ok with this approach, but I'm curious:
If the user made a copy of the CLANG_FLAGS variable and modified its
copy, would TENTATIVE_CLANG_FLAGS even be necessary? IIUC,
TENTATIVE_CLANG_FLAGS is used to filter out certain flags before
passing them to bindgen?

Or, I'm curious whether you even need to rename this variable (or
create a new variable) at all? Might make for a shorter diff if you
just keep the existing identifier (CLANG_FLAGS), but create them
unconditionally (at least not conditional on CC=clang).
