  I know about this. My cross-compiler is OK. I cross-build many stuff 
with it.
  But Linux kernel build process needs some specific tools, like 
modpost. They are also built from sources, but they are built to run on 
the host, not on the target. And of course they use host's (Cygwin's in 
our case) gcc with its includes.
These tools operate on newly built ELF files, this is why they use these
