[Clang][Driver] don't error for unsupported as options for -no-integrated-as

Authored by nickdesaulniers on Jul 12 2019, 12:03 PM.



The Linux kernel's assembler flag detection started failing after
r365703. It seems that Clang was erroring for -Wa, flags that it did
not support (good), but even doing so when using -no-integrated-as

s/integrates/integrated in the title, but otherwise this looks good.

I don't think this is the right fix, because now I think we get this behavior that we don't want:

$ clang -E t.c -o t.i -Wa,-mbig-obj
# no warning
$ clang -E t.c -o t.i -Wa,-mbig-obj -fno-integrated-as
clang: warning: argument unused during compilation: '-Wa,-mbig-obj' [-Wunused-command-line-argument]

If we can't make those behave the same, I think we should revert to fix the Linux build and silence the warning a different way.

I reverted @thakis's change in rC365956, but I think in retrospect I should've just stamped your change. I was glazing over the "Integrated" part of "CollectArgsForIntegratedAssembler". Anyway, I think we should leave it alone and let him decide how to handle integrated and non-integrated assembly in a uniform way.

Sorry, I missed this thread (and the other one) yesterday. Thanks for sorting out my mess; I'll think about what I want to do for the reland.

I think is a better fix, for the reason rnk gave above. I think this one can be abandoned.
