Subject[PATCH 2/4] Core support for --combine -fwhole-program
From
Date
This patch adds a config option for COMBINE_COMPILE, adds the __global
tag to compiler.h and makes EXPORT_SYMBOL automatically use it. It also
contains a crappy Makefile hack which uses -fwhole-program --combine for
all multi-obj .o files -- anything which was
obj-m := foo.o
foo-objs := bar.o wibble.o
... should now use gcc -o foo.o --combine -fwhole-program bar.c wibble.c

The makefile hack is known not to work properly for generated C files in
out-of-source-tree builds, and for multi-obj files where one of the
sources is _assembly_ instead of C. It's good enough for the proof of
concept, until someone more clueful can do it properly though. It would
be useful to make built-in.o build with --combine from _everything_
which uses standard CFLAGS, rather than doing just what I've done here.

For example only; do not apply as-is.
