Example:

-
+ # drivers/acpi/Makefile
+ ccflags-y := -Os
+ ccflags-$(CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG) += -DACPI_DEBUG_OUTPUT

This variable is necessary because the top Makefile owns the
variable $(KBUILD_CFLAGS) and uses it for compilation flags for the
entire tree.

- asflags-y is a similar string for per-directory options
- when compiling assembly language source.
+ asflags-y specifies options for assembling with $(AS).

Example:
- #arch/x86_64/kernel/Makefile
- asflags-y := -traditional
-
+ #arch/sparc/kernel/Makefile
+ asflags-y := -ansi

- ldflags-y is a string for per-directory options to $(LD).
+ ldflags-y specifies options for linking with $(LD).

Example:
- #arch/m68k/fpsp040/Makefile
- ldflags-y := -x
+ #arch/cris/boot/compressed/Makefile
+ ldflags-y += -T $(srctree)/$(src)/decompress_$(arch-y).lds

subdir-ccflags-y, subdir-asflags-y
- The two flags listed above are similar to ccflags-y and as-falgs-y.
- The difference is that the subdir- variants has effect for the kbuild
- file where tey are present and all subdirectories.
- Options specified using subdir-* are added to the commandline before
- the options specified using the non-subdir variants.
