Unfortunately, it's not possible to build mainline linux with clang right now. Currently most efforts on patching the kernel are combined in this repo: (it is also not ready to be compiled yet).

You can also check my GNU-free toolchain as a starting point:
It uses musl, clang, lld and libcxx with very little patching.
