    I'm afraid some people do not realize a whit about what they do.
    So at least we could let kbuild warn about it.
    Something like this:

    $ export CFLAGS=-O3
    $ make AFLAGS=-fisk
    Makefile:540: "Appending $AFLAGS (-fisk) from command line to kernel defined $AFLAGS"
    Makefile:544: "Appending $CFLAGS (-O3) from environment to kernel defined $CFLAGS"
    CHK include/linux/version.h
    CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
    CC arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.s
    GEN include/asm-x86/asm-offsets.h
    CALL scripts/
    CC scripts/mod/empty.o

    This patch is needed to do so.

    If one does a make O=... build then they will see the warning(s) twice.
