On gccs that support AVX it's a good idea to disable that too, similar to
how SSE2, SSE1 etc. are already disabled. This prevents the compiler
from generating AVX ever implicitely.

No failure observed, just from review.

This (now in linux-next) causes m68k/allmodconfig to fail for me:

  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/generated/utsrelease.h
  CC      kernel/bounds.s
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-fno-ipa-cp-clone"

Somehow, "$(call cc-option,-fno-ipa-cp-clone,)" doesn't detect that my
toolchain (gcc version 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.1-21))
doesn't support this option.

I tried playing with the trailing comma (why do the first 2 tests have it,
and the 3rd one doesn't?), but that didn't make a difference.

linux-next builds (using a newer toolchain) don't show this.

Sounds like the fundamental action item is to find out what makes
cc-option not work.

Could people move to this century and drop these ugly "\" line-continuations please...
People seems to get along in C without but think they should be used in Makefiles..

The trailing comma does not have any affect - it is only ugly and should be dropped.
You should try cc-diasable-warning like this:

KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning, ipa-cp-clone)

from Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt:

    cc-disable-warning
        cc-disable-warning checks if gcc supports a given warning and returns
        the commandline switch to disable it. This special function is needed,
        because gcc 4.4 and later accept any unknown -Wno-* option and only
        warn about it if there is another warning in the source file.

        Example:
                KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning, unused-but-set-variable)

        In the above example, -Wno-unused-but-set-variable will be added to
        KBUILD_CFLAGS only if gcc really accepts it.


The documentation refer to gcc 4.4 - but maybe the older gcc you have
has the same behaviour.

FWIW, it did detect that:
  - -fno-reorder-blocks is supported,
  - -fno-partial-inlining is not supported.

Not without an additional patch for make:

Makefile:575: *** missing separator (did you mean TAB instead of 8
spaces?).  Stop.

Seems to be that case. Thx!

I meant like this:

KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-option,-fno-reorder-blocks)
KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning,-fno-ipa-cp-clone)
KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-option,-fno-partial-inlining)

No, unfortunately it doesn't enable the flag with my compiler.
Also BTW ipa-cp-clone is not a warning, it's an optimization pass.

Sam any other ideas?

Yeah I see now.
cc-disable-warning only works on warnings - which starts with -W

Could you try this:

cc-disable-opt = $(call try-run,\
        $(CC) $(KBUILD_CPPFLAGS) $(KBUILD_CFLAGS) -f$(strip $(1)) -c -xc /dev/null -o "$$TMP",-fno-$(strip $(1)))

KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-opt, ipa-cp-clone)


It will try if "gcc -fipa-cp-clone" is supported,
and add -fno-ipa-cp-clone in that case.

So with the above command-line gcc fails with an exit code for -fno-ipa-cp-clone.
But with cc-option it does not.

Can you dig out the command-line used for cc-option?
We may be able to analyze why it fails in the above case, but
not with cc-option.

I wonder if we hit something strange due to the fact that we
are assigning to KBUILD_CFLAGS and we reference the same variable.

But that does not explain why the others work.

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs
-fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -Werror-implicit-function-declaration
-Wno-format-security -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -Os
-fno-ipa-cp-clone -c -xc /dev/null -o .6376.tmp

So it's running "gcc" instead of "m68k-linux-gnu-gcc".

I used the gmail-damaged patch below to get the command in /tmp/x.

The above calls cc-option using CC = gcc, as my cross compiler
is only setup in the next line:

| include $(srctree)/arch/$(SRCARCH)/Makefile

This affects all architectures that setup CROSS_COMPILE in their arch/*/Makefile
(blackfin, h8300, m68k, mips, parisc, score, sh, tile, unicore32, xtensa).

Worse, m68k, sh, and xtensa call cc-option in their arch/*/Makefile
before CROSS_COMPILE is setup, causing those checks to be done against
the host compiler when cross-compiling.

Sending out patches, as soon as the (automatic) "git gc" completes...
