I had made a small mistake with the gcc-11.1-rc1 binaries and had to rebuild them all, and reupload a later snapshot.
Upload is about to finish any minute now, and but the 11.1.0 release is now there, so I can rebuild once more.
If anyone wants to test the binaries, please let me know how it goes, I can wait a few more days before building them again so I don't have to do it a fourth time.
I've updated the cross compilers on kernel.org, gcc-10.3 and gcc-11.1-rc1 builds for all supported kernel targets other than hexagon are now available to run on x86_64, arm64 and ppc64le.

[$] Old compilers and old bugs
The kernel project goes out of its way to facilitate building with older
toolchains. Building a kernel on a new system can be enough of a challenge
as it is; being being forced to install a custom toolchain first would not
improve the situation. So the kernel
developers try to keep it possible to build the kernel with the toolchains
shipped by most distributors. There are costs to this policy t

is what took the kernel to over 1,000,000 commits.
Since I sent that pull request, I object to the following step of picking the specific winner as one that is not in this branch.
Instead, how about this one:

I just finished building gcc-10.1 cross compilers for all the major architectures supported by the Linux kernel, and uploaded them to the usual location at https://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/pub/tools/crosstool
These should run on any x86_64/ppc64le/arm64 host and build all recent kernels, though they still produce some known compiler warnings.
