SubjectRe: [PATCH] Built kernel without -O2 option

This seems to me as a workaround. The real fix would be to use
__attribute__((always_inline))
for functions requiring to be inlined and just compile everything with -O0 -g.

info '(gcc)Function Attributes'
`always_inline'
Generally, functions are not inlined unless optimization is specified.
For functions declared inline, this attribute inlines the function
even if no optimization level was specified.

But `always_inline' has been discussed on linux-kernel million times.
I have not googled out a resolution why it is not applicable to this problem,
do you know why?


Thanks,
Jan
