SubjectRe: [GIT] kbuild/lto changes for 3.15-rc1
Thanks Honza. Just one comment:

In my experience there's a lot of badly tuned code in the kernel these days,
especially when you go outside the core code (i.e. into drivers/*)

Or code that used to be tuned, but isn't aftermore after several years
of feature additions and bug fixes. The kernel code quality is also quite varying.

So anything the compiler can do helps.

We saw some upsides in performance with some standard tests, but nothing
too significant.
