Indeed. For three years, nobody has noticed that the gcc commandline is
growing with every subdirectory.

I don't think it's a good idea to add this to the main Makefile. First
of all, this option

> +warning-1 += $(call cc-option, -Wunused-but-set-variable)

gets overridden by

KBUILD_CFLAGS += $(call cc-disable-warning, unused-but-set-variable)

couple of lines later. This is easily fixed by moving the whole block
down. However, the main Makefile is quite complex already, so please
move this to a new Makefile fragment in scripts/ and include this from
the main Makefile instead.

Thanks,
Michal
