Subject: [PATCH] Kconfig: default to CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_PERFORMANCE_O3 for gcc >= 10
Date: Thu,  7 May 2020 16:45:30 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200507224530.2993316-1-Jason@zx2c4.com> (raw)

GCC 10 appears to have changed -O2 in order to make compilation time
faster when using -flto, seemingly at the expense of performance, in
particular with regards to how the inliner works. Since -O3 these days
shouldn't have the same set of bugs as 10 years ago, this commit
defaults new kernel compiles to -O3 when using gcc >= 10.
