I agree with you here, it could be a rare check where one want to define 
what collect progam should be used ( ld or ar )

besides, recently we moved AR to be gcc-ar/llvm-ar by default in config 
metadata, which is not going to work out of box for compiling kernel and 
modules, so overriding it with KERNEL_AR in 
module_do_compile/install/configure tasks is good change.
