The kernel would still build, just without the AES-NI CTR optimization (or kvm).
And we work very hard to make sure this is the case except in the most unavoidable situations.
Why so hard? It has a cost. The user can certainly 'make AS=~/new-binutils/bin/gas' and it wouldn't even affect the rest of their system.
