[PATCH v2] reapply: powerpc/xmon: Relax frame size for clang

This is a manual revert of commit
7f3c5d099b6f8452dc4dcfe4179ea48e6a13d0eb, but using
ccflags-$(CONFIG_CC_IS_CLANG) which is shorter.

Turns out that this is reproducible still under specific compiler
versions (mea culpa: I did not test every supported version of clang),
and even a few randconfigs bots found.

We'll have to revisit this again in the future, for now back this out.
