This does look neat. When I tried it though, I ended up with ..

scan-build: Removing directory '/mnt/data/src/git-trees/kernel/linux-2.6/clang/2009-09-04-1' because it contains no reports.

While I'd love to believe the kernel is bug free, I have a hard time convincing
myself that clang is doing the right thing.

I added a path to the clang bin/ dir, and copied scan-build to my ~/bin
and then ran with 'make defconfig ; scan-build -o clang make bzImage'

Am I missing something obvious ?
