      kbuild: allow assignment to {A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE on the command line · 6588169d
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      It is now possible to assign options to AS, CC and LD
      on the command line - which is only used when building modules.
      {A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE was all used both in the top-level Makefile
      in the arch makefiles, thus users had no way to specify
      additional options to AS, CC, LD when building modules
      without overriding the original value.
      Introduce a new set of variables KBUILD_{A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE
      that is used by arch specific files and free up
      {A,C,LD}FLAGS_MODULE so they can be assigned on
      the command line.
      All arch Makefiles that used the old variables has been updated.
      Note: Previously we had a MODFLAGS variable for both
      AS and CC. But in favour of consistency this was dropped.
      So in some cases arch Makefile has one assignmnet replaced by
      two assignmnets.
      Note2: MODFLAGS was not documented and is dropped
      without any notice. I do not expect much/any breakage
      from this.

      Kbuild: Add option to set -femit-struct-debug-baseonly · d6f4ceb7
      Andi Kleen authored
      Newer gcc has a -femit-struct-debug-baseonly option that dramatically
      reduces the size of object files with debug info. What it does
      is to only emit type information for structures when the structures
      are defined in the same file or in a header file.
      This means the type information for most headers are not included.
      This is not good when the type information is actually
      needed (e.g. with kgdb or systemtap)
      But often kernel hackers only care about line numbers and don't
      need all the type information anyways. In this case setting
      the option can be a big win:
      A build dir for a specific x86-64 configuration with gcc 4.5
      shrunk from 2.3G to 1.2G. The compilation was also nearly a minute

      Makefile.build: make KBUILD_SYMTYPES work again · e26d6b83
      Don Zickus authored
      commit 37a8d9f6 tried to combine some
      duplicate code and accidentally broke how KBUILD_SYMTYPES worked
      This fixes the code to match the original intention by the author who
      originally added the code I believe.
      The fixes include:
      - removing extra whitespaces in the if-statements
      - moving the if-statement from around the -r to the -T
      - adding a second arg to cmd_gensymtypes to simplify the options passed
        to genksyms.
      Tested by instrumenting genksyms and seeing what options were passed in
      during a make, KBUILD_SYMTYPES make, and when a foo.symref was created.
      Everything compiled and looked ok.

      Given that absolute paths can be forced by make O=. cscope, change the
      default back to relative paths.

      kbuild: Do not unnecessarily regenerate modules.builtin · a6c36632
      Michal Marek authored
      Only regenerate it if the configuration has changed. Also, do this after
      the modules build to fix errors with some weird Makefiles that are
      generated during build.
