Yes, I've always thought this :-) It borrows the host x86 compiler
just because it kinda happens to work most of the time in the
common cases. Now we have proper docker cross infrastructure
available it would certainly be nice to use it consistently for
building firmware. (It would also make it more palatable to
have VDSOs for linux-user, which would also need to be built with
a target C compiler.)
