    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.
