    Subject[PATCH 4/8] kgdb: COPTIMIZE flag
    From: Jason Wessel <>

    This patch adds in the ability to unoptimize a single kernel module to
    make source stepping more linear and not optimize out variables that
    the developer might like to inspect. It used with adding
    COPTIMIZE=-O0 to the build line when doing something like a single
    kernel module only build. Or you could use it to override the default
    optimization level entirely.
