Subject[RFC PATCH] kbuild: implement several W= levels
Building a kernel with "make W=1" produce far too much noise
to be usefull.

Divide the warning options in three groups:

W=1 - usefull warning options
W=2 - noisy but semi usefull warnign options
W=3 - almost pure noise options

I do not feel strongly about the distinction between
group 2 and 3. But we should consider what we add in group 1.


Sample run on my box (x86, 32bit allyesconfig build)
CC kernel/bounds.s
kernel/bounds.c:14: warning: no previous prototype for ‘foo’
GEN include/generated/bounds.h
CC arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s
In file included from include/linux/sched.h:73,
from arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.c:9:
include/linux/signal.h: In function ‘sigorsets’:
include/linux/signal.h:121: warning: nested extern declaration of ‘_NSIG_WORDS_is_unsupported_size’

include/linux/signal.h:151: warning: nested extern declaration of ‘_NSIG_WORDS_is_unsupported_size’
arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.c: At top level:
arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.c:30: warning: no previous prototype for ‘common’

the patch is only an RFC - and is not made on top
of an upstream kernel with no additiona stuff applied.
