Subject: [PATCH] arm64: defconfig: Disable DEBUG_INFO
Date: Tue,  2 Mar 2021 18:58:52 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

We've had DEBUG_INFO enabled for arm64 defconfigs since the initial
commit.  This is probably not that frequently used but substantially
inflates the size of the build tree and amount of I/O needed during the
build.  This was causing issues with storage usage in some automated CI
environments which don't expect defconfigs to be quite this big, and
generally increases the resource consumption for both them and people
doing local builds.  Turn the option off by default to remove these
overheads from the default, people can always enable DEBUG_INFO if they
need it.

Without this patch my build tree is 6.8G, with it the size drops to 909M.
