arm: clang: Update support slightly

- Move most of the flags required into LLVM_RELFLAGS to test at build
  time instead of requiring them to be passed in.
- Update doc/README.clang to reflect this
- Switch to rpi_2 as the example as it's closer to working out of the
  box than rpi is.

Binary packages can be installed as usual, e.g.:
sudo apt-get install clang
To compile U-Boot with clang on linux without IAS use e.g.:
export TRIPLET=arm-linux-gnueabi && export CROSS_COMPILE="$TRIPLET-"
make HOSTCC=clang CC="clang -target $TRIPLET -mllvm -arm-use-movt=0 -no-integrated-as" rpi_defconfig
make HOSTCC=clang CC="clang -target $TRIPLET -mllvm -arm-use-movt=0 -no-integrated-as" all V=1 -j8
Note that we still use binutils for some tools so we must continue to set
CROSS_COMPILE. To compile U-Boot with clang on linux without IAS use e.g.:
make HOSTCC=clang rpi_2_defconfig
make HOSTCC=clang CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- CC=clang -j8
It can also be used to compile sandbox:
make HOSTCC=clang sandbox_defconfig

simplified with a simple wrapper script, listed below.
