Subject[RFC PATCH v2] kbuild: implement several W= levels

Subject: [PATCH] kbuild: implement several W= levels

Building a kernel with "make W=1" produce far too much noise
to be usefull.

Divide the warning options in three groups:

W=1 - warnings that may be relevant and does not occur too often
W=2 - warnings that occur quite often but may still be relevant
W=3 - the more obscure warnings, can most likely be ignored

When building init/ on my box the levels produces:

W=1 - 46 warnings
W=2 - 863 warnings
W=3 - 6496 warnings

Many warnings occur from .h files so fixing one file may have a nice
effect on the total number of warnings.

With these changes I am actually tempted to try W=1 now and then.
Previously there were just too much noise.

This is based on top of -linus to make it easy to test.
But I included fixes for older gcc as posted in a separate patch.
Changes since v1:
- updated help text
- updated grouping, less warnings in W=1
- reimplment selection of warnings for the individual levels
- added a comment describing the individual levels
