You're right, ./Makefile shouldn't get any fatter than it is right now :).

Here's a second version; Ingo, I've left your ack in even though it was
referencing the initial version since the idea is kept the same - only
the code placement is different.

Thanks.

Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: Add extra gcc checks

Add a 'W=1' Makefile switch which adds additional checking per build
object.

The idea behind this option is targeted at developers who, in the
process of writing their code, want to do the occasional

make W=1 [target.o]

and let gcc do more extensive code checking for them. Then, they
could eyeball the output for valid gcc warnings about various
bugs/discrepancies which are not reported during the normal build
process.

For more background information and a use case, read through this
thread: http://marc.info/?l=kernel-janitors&m=129802065918147&w=2
