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 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.

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.
