Following is the quoted text from the reply mail from Masahiro

>> -GAS_STATUS     = $(shell $(srctree)/arch/ia64/scripts/check-gas "$(CC)" "$(OBJDUMP)")

>From the above text, I understand as follows:

That my proposed change:
$(shell $(src...)    ->  $($(CONFIG_SHELL) $(src...)

is WRONG

and in the next line he suggested the required correction.
That being:
$($(CONFIG_SHELL)    ->  $(shell $(CONFIG_SHELL)

Which is in v2 of the patch series.

Lukas, please correct me if I'm wrong so that I can work on v3
if required.

Also, Nathan reviewed both the patches in v1 of this series. So,
should I be the one who adds his tag in next iterations?


Thanks
